BIRDS OF A FEATHER
While sitting in the bank's drive-through isle, I noticed a lot of birds lined up on the overhead wires, all facing the same direction.
Being curious, I looked it up online. According to Wild Birds Unlimited, "Birds sit on power lines, trees, roofs or any perch, facing into the wind. Any other direction would ruffle their feathers. It's also easier to communicate."
When I was much younger, I learned that this high-wire bird formation in late fall also means that winter weather is VERY close behind. Be prepared, because winter is coming early this year!
