ground feeding

lately hundreds of small birds have been foraging for seed in the tall grasses. they hide in the weeds and are visible only when the grass rustles as they hop from one blade to the next. walk by on your way to the compost pile and they suddenly fly en masse, more birds in one place than you would ever think possible.

I have lots of little birds foraging in the honeysuckle and other growth. walk by--they take off en mass! I totally related to your photo and description.
