Driving home Thursday evening in rural south Manteca, I was struck by the sight of black foliage atop a pair of tall dead trees in the middle of a field. I noticed the leaves moving, darting to and fro which I found puzzling. As it turned out, they were not leaves at all. They were little black birds looking for a crepuscular place to roost for the night. At least, that's what I thought they were doing.
