roosting

I mentioned before that Seabrook Island is home to a lot of birds. That fact is highlighted nightly when the birds come to roost. When I took this photo there were several hundred birds roosting in the trees near the Lake House. It was a moving site and one I plan to photograph again.

I assume they roost in groups for safety.
