A 52-Week Photo Journey

17. In A Row


As we were driving to dinner one evening, I could not believe my eyes when I spotted these birds perched all in a row on these wires.  I wish I could’ve gotten all of them in the photo but I did not have my wide angle lens on the camera.  Ironically enough, a few evenings later we decided to go to the same restaurant and there they were again on the same wires.  Strangely enough, both evenings they all decided to leave at the same time.  It was really unusual.  It made me wonder why this happened and which bird made the reservation!

A true Southerner, I was born in Georgia but lived most of my adult life in Chattanooga, Tennessee. In 2001, my husband and I retired and moved to beautiful Sarasota, FL. We quickly realized that we were not retirement material and could not play golf two or three times a week so we got our real estate licenses and affiliated with Coldwell Banker on Longboat Key. My love for photography is very beneficial to me when photographing interiors and exteriors of the homes we list. Other than photography, I have a keen interest in genealogy and golf (whenever I can find the spare time from our real estate practice).

  1. I have never in my almost 76 years, seen that many birds on wires.


  2. This theme could have been “Birds of a Feather.”: 🙂 Nice shot and one does wonder who the lead bird is and their method of communicating.


  3. Funny how the birds keep a schedule. When I lived in Panama there was a flock of parrots that flew overhead every morning at the same time while a group of us did our outdoor morning yoga.


  4. Great shot MN. Obviously birds do communicate very effectively. I like it!!


  5. Channeling Alfred Hitchcock!


  6. That is wonderful! They must be starlings?? I have never seen them on multiple wires like you found. Great job for “in a line” theme.


  7. I’m glad my white car was not parked under the wires! 😉 Great photo!
