The Birds

leave a comment »

While walking with Delilah yesterday afternoon, I think we gained an appreciation for what might have inspired Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Birds.”



It’s not about the video image. You gotta have the sound on to get the gist of what we experienced.

When we got close and stopped to check out the chaos, we experienced a wonder of nature when the birds all suddenly fell silent. It’s just fascinating to witness the cooperation of that many birds that have just been shouting up a storm of noise to all understand when it becomes time to get quiet.

Lasted barely a second and the cacophony resumed at full force.

A brilliant spectacle.
