Thousandsof starlings and grackles are gathering every evening in the trees alongWestheimer and around the Galleria in Houston,the Blog was startled to see and hear on a recent visit. The noise isincredibly loud, even over the normal roar of the traffic.  The black birds wheel across the sky in greatdark clouds, and perch along the overhead cables in dense concentrationsreminiscent of Hitchcock’s film “The Birds.”
