Wow... a whole flock of the rare Eastern Phonebills! Great shot. I guess you didn't want to clone out those distracting power lines, huh? ;-)

Wow, It'd be so cool to throw a piece of cheese (or some other safe object) in the air around here.

Journalistically speaking, this is great. Quite the conversation piece, but as a photo it doesn't do much for me. 5

man that is a ton of birds!!! I hope that you didn't get pooped on. Great clouds, I like the birds but the image is a little busy.

6 - Good capture/opportunity. Criticism; this has/had more potential in my opinion, perhaps a different perspective, different crop, not sure. Difficult, and camera/lens dependent, but more detail in at least a 'few birds' would obviously have made this even better. Also the potential here for an unusual abstract possibly, who knows. Frame is too thick, especially at this size, and detracts, in my opinion.

I think you get the prize for most birds!
