B/Alphabe-Thursday

 Hundreds and hundreds of birds!

B is for BIRDS

Is it just me or is anyone else thinking Alfred Hichcock?

 Migrating blackbirds

Last week my husband and I were on a roadtrip when we saw THIS crossing the highway and...

 More migrating blackbirds

THIS flying overhead. The good news is NONE of these birds was violent.

The way those large flocks of birds move in the sky is magical but I do remember the movie too.

Great Shots. I am really not afraid
of birds, I have two of my own, but
that would bother me to be under
so many.. "splat" would bother me
more....
Happy Holidays

Snowcatcher said...

Incredible. I love to see birds flock together like that. I even enjoy researching afterward what the name is for the action for the specific species when I've witnessed it.

Ooo, kinda creepy! I can just see them crashing against the windows! Maybe they're flying because of the new movie coming out about Hitchcock!

These shots remind me of the movie by Alfred Hitchcock - The Birds. Really like these!

Jenny said...

These bold birds do make me shiver, just a bit.

I watched that old movie a few months ago. It still scared me.

Thanks for linking.

The day before my brother died I saw crows, thousands upon thousands in the trees, on roof tops , in the yards, covering everything like black crepe, there was not a spot left exposed.

God has a way of giving us a heads-up.
