365-18 The Birds

Driving around while doing some errands i came across this site at a busy corner. For some reason all these birds had congregated in this area. It was quite noisy and seemed to be some kind of bird party in progress - they were a chirpin and making a fuss. It did bring to mind that Alfred Hitchcock classic The Birds starring Tippi Hedren (Melanie Griffith's mom) - only those birds didn't make a sound. If you haven't seen it - the movie takes place around early 50s i guess in anytown America. And one day the citizens notice the birds kind of just are everywhere - like in the photo - and watching. These aren't your cute little sparrows but the large, black crow-looking birds. And one day these birds just go berserk and start attacking everyone . That part is gross, not a movie you watch with little ones around as they will never look at a bird the same again. If you like suspenseful, scary movies this is a good one to rent - creepy...

My son was 13 or so when he saw The Birds. He ducked and ran every time we went outside for a long time...
