Grackles and cowbirds fill the sky above the Metro Diner across from the Baylor Hospital campus at dusk in Dallas, Texas, Dec. 7, 2006. Photographer Guy Reynolds says, "This is one of my favorite little neighborhood eateries and while my son and I were having an early dinner the birds just kept coming. When I went out to get my camera from the car I noticed quite a few fresh messes on the car. I was lucky to avoid any direct hits from the flocks as the passed overhead."
