What's in Your Backyard?

Part of the fun of being in a new environment is discovering cool places practically in your own backyard. This Buddhist Temple was a great find--thanks to my neighbor! We went out for an adventure and ended up here. Can't wait to go back for meditation--all are welcome at 6am or 7pm. Guess which one I'll be trying for.

A Murmuration in Solivita

Could it be? A real murmuration in Solivita? Click here to watch and you be the judge.

The first I heard of a murmuration was a viral video last December. Remember the two girls in the canoe? No? It is truly amazing.

So imagine my surprise when Richard and I were out for a bike ride in February and we came across a similar phenomenon. Way cool. Now to be a true murmuration (I just love saying that word!) these have to be starlings and I'm not sure they are. Richard thinks they may be swallows but, as we don't have a definitive answer, I'm calling it a murmuration. Hope you enjoy it!
