the birds...

Two weekends ago we came downstairs to see a flock of swallows flying around and even flying into our large glass windows. This photo does not do it justice. There were probably 5 times the amount.

When not flying madly they were relaxing on our dock, our neighbor's dock and the other neighbor's porch railing. John noticed that it was just us 3 and other docks further down had no birds. I wonder if it was our old wooden docks vs. the newer white possibly fiberglass ones.

Actually it was pretty creepy especially when they were flying and so close to us. It made me think of the Hitchcock movie, The Birds.

The Birds 1963PG-13120 minutes Chic socialite Melanie Daniels (Tippi Hedren) enjoys a passing flirtation with an eligible attorney (Rod Taylor) in a San Francisco pet shop and, on an impulse, follows him to his hometown bearing a gift of lovebirds. But upon her arrival, the bird population runs amok. Suddenly, the townsfolk face a massive avian onslaught, with the feathered fiends inexplicably attacking people all over Bodega Bay. Cast: Rod Taylor, Tippi Hedren, Jessica Tandy Director: Alfred Hitchcock

And now the birds are gone... it was just the one day that we saw them. But now I have an urge to watch all the old Hitchcock movies. I think I have Vertigo in my Netflix queue.
