[click photos to enlarge] Driving down Carlton St. just east of the Welland Canal on Jan.24, the road, on a sunny afternoon, was suddenly blacked out by a swirling black cloud of starlings. There were thousands of them, flying and swooping in a low, huge mass. At one point, I couldn't even see the road. I managed to take a picure of this phenomenonal flying flock of birds before they just as suddenly vanished.
