Usage examples for Roosting

  1. From whichever side the wind blew it was calm here, and during the heaviest rain the birds would sit here in their thousands, pouring out a continuous torrent of song, which resembled the noise produced by thousands of starlings at roosting time, but was louder and differed somewhat in character owing to the peculiar song of the cow- bird, which begins with hollow guttural sounds, followed by a burst of loud clear ringing notes. – Far Away and Long Ago by W. H. Hudson
