  3. Tex, Perth and Mama, thanks very much for those comments and compliments. I, too could not get over the incredible bio mass of the birds. The sounds of their wings were really powerful, yet delicate at the same time. And, they cheep and peep on lifting off, too. That was pretty impressive with that many little voices!
