Heavy Overhead passage today.

Hello everyone,

Just back from a trip to Red Rocks where I have seen more migrating passerines in an hour than I'd guess for the rest of the year.

Got to do some work for the rest of today, but here are a couple of shots. The first flock is a tiny part of a Starling flock that reached from north of the point, out of sight over West Kirby.

I've no idea how many... I've guessed 18k.... but on reflection, had this flock be waders, then there would have been 30-40k in the one flock. I should have a better idea of numbers after I've estimated the photo.

Thank you!
