4 and Twenty Blackbirds

On our way home this afternoon, we parked on the side of the road and watch a couple of farmers plow up a grassy field.
He had what looked like thousands of birds enjoying whatever feast he was plowing up.
There were cattle egrets, great-tailed grackles and 5 hawks.
When Ken looked at his photos this afternoon we discovered that at least one hawk was a white-tailed hawk so we can add a new bird to our birding check list.
There were so many grackles it almost blacken the sky at times.
Here a few of the grackles are taking a break.
This is what makes it fun to be a bird watcher.
It made my day since I was feeling a little under the weather with allergies.
