Mackeral Clouds for Skywatch Friday

Wednesday morning the sky was definitely grey and overcast, but what a beautiful mackerel pattern of clouds it displayed.
I watch birds a lot and I have observed that birds also watch the skies a lot. Here are two recent examples of our feathered sky watchers: a small flock of starlings, and today I took this photo of a handsome Tree Sparrow against the blue sky.

My thanks to the hosts of Skywatch Fridayhttp://skyley.blogspot.com/ for continuing to host this very popular Friday skywatch meme. If you would like to post your own photos or just enjoy looking to see the photographic offerings of others, please scroll down this page and look upon the righ hand side to click on the skywatch logo to go to the meme. A happy Friday to all.

The clouds remind me of truck tracks in the sand. :)
