While driving across the country... and no, I don't specifically remember the state in which I was driving... I had the honor of seeing huge flocks of birds flying together to go to their roosting sites. Lucky for me, it made them cross the road I was driving on and as I went further and further down the road, the more and more flocks I saw. They appeared to come from large fields and trees, and be going on the other side where there was water and larger bush. I never saw them land, just saw them cross from one side to the other and thought it so cool a site that I had to video with my phone as I experienced it, so that all of you could experience it too. What beauty! Some interesting articles on roosting:
These birds aren't parrots in the video, and the articles talk about wild birds, not parrots, but they're still interesting reads nonetheless and I hope one day I can visit places like Africa and Australia and see wild parrots flying to roost. Now that would be a sight!
