Attack of the dull, dull little birds

Not sure why, but our back yard seems to be a very exciting place for these birds. This is the second time that we have seen a gigantuan flock of these little guys hanging around our backyard. They don't seem to be eating our grass seed, so I think it might be all the weeds back there that is grabbing there attention.

Joe ran out back and screamed at the birds and they hi-tailed it to the safety of our roof. It was actually quite funny! So many birds, but I have no idea what they are. They look pretty boring actually. Just brown and dull. However, when there are 50 of them in your backyard one tends to take notice.

huh...pretty neat. If you want I could come by with a bb-gun and we could try and down one. It would make the identification process easier :) btw, i've tried the "yelling at a roosting flock of birds" thing before and all I can say is be careful. Sometimes when they all take flight some of them "jetison excess cargo" in your direction...if you know what I mean.... - Osborne
