The only thing I can think of is that Arlington must be an in between stop for the migration of these birds from the north to the south.
They were everywhere on this one corner. They would fly as a group from one side of the road to the other whenever they got startled.
It was like a big black cloud. It was pretty freaky.
You can click on the pictures to make them bigger if you want to see how many there are.
Avery and I are in Seattle. We were able to get our flight changed so that we are going to fly straight from Seattle to Anchorage with no stop in Juneau, which is great. I was not too thrilled about spending the night in Juneau, because the airport closes and a room was crazy expensive and we were only going to be there long enough to sleep for like 5 hours and that's it. I love Alaska Air. They are so great about accommodating peoples needs. They didnt charge me a change fee or baggage fees or anything. Awesome! So now we have a direct flight, but we still wont be home for about 20 hours. blah. We've got a 5 hour layover here and then a 10 hour layover in Anchorage. Too bad I dont have a car, I could go grocery shopping.
