Hello Constance & all;

I see wonderful murmuration patterns to the west side of 67th Ave NE,
between 108th St. NE and 132nd St. NE, pretty much every time I go through
there, as I'm headed towards the turn off for the Strawberry Fields Athletic
Complex. They seem especially active this time of the year. They appear to
be mostly starlings, but I'm usually not close enough to be sure.

I hope you and your friend find many!

Take care and be well all,
Dusty
