Crows at Dusk

Every evening I can watch the roosting of the neighborhood birds, crows, mockingbirds and doves.  Group after group will fly to the tops of the rooftops across the street east of my patio.  Last week the clouds in the east were reflecting the setting sun.  All I could get were dark shadows of the birds.  But sometimes for bird watchers flight against water colored sky is enough.  And the first three shots are SOOC.

A bird we came across in The Netherlands was in the children’s garden at Keukenhof.
