the red winged marauders

video
This afternoon a gang of red winged black birds invaded our back yard crowding out the Cardinals, Sparrows, Chickadees, etc.  There were hundreds of them. They were in the trees, bushes, and on the fence. It reminded me of Hitchcock's  "The Birds".  It was an eerie sight.  Then, just as suddenly as they came they were gone.

Birds can be scary. I wish I'd never seen The Birds---it gives me flashes sometimes when I'm out walking, or when I'm on a ferry....still got snow?

Lorna: Most of the birds that gather around the feeder have been rather genteel creatures, but those black birds were hooligans.
