Well, I rarely pay attention to birds, since there are so many around here. I usually take time to observe the daily geese commute - there's a Hunting club nearby that keeps a large group of partly-domesticated ones. Every day at sunrise, they fly over my house to spend the day at a lake at the back of the property, then fly home around or shortly after sunset. And I occasionally notice the odd mockingbird or two, since they're free entertainment. The spring migration has apparently begun. Shortly after 6am, I had to make a quick run down the road. I looked up and thought, "great, more thunderstorms rolling in". Wrong. It was an approaching CLOUD of birds that I could not see either end of on the horizon, left to right. Anyway, I got home, and went out to feed 2 of the dogs. Said bird cloud engulfed us all. Hundreds of thousands of them. Never seen anything like it, at least not from this perspective. Rather than go nuts, the dogs were completely frozen in time. In contrast, the collie-shepherd mix is famous for snatching low-flying birds out of mid-air and killing them. AT this point I figure, well I haven't had my shower yet anyway, so I just stood there and waited for the experience. The bottom layer was so low, and so close to us, that they whipped up enough wind to make my hair stand straight up. Hundreds of them literally passed my head so close that if I had moved, they would have nailed me. Everyone should have this experience. Cool beyond belief.
