I kid you not!

Flock is the wrong word.
A herd of birds just flew by;
Had me out of my chair
Over to the window
Mouth gaping
Audibly gasping

Nature, my eye!
This was Alfred Hitchcock stuff.

This bunch would snicker at stale bread,
Throw back wilted popcorn,
Spit out mere sunflower seeds.

Nope! These guys are looking for
Sirloin steak and twice-baked potatoes.
Possibly your first-born!

Mob mentality! Yikes!

ROFL. I absolutely loved this, Katy. It's fantastic. Got the image in my head and the sense of dread too. I live by a reservation that's filled with birds. They sing to me beautifully, but sometimes Hitchcock does cross my mind.

They shit right in your eye
It's a damn good thing for us
That cows can't fly." - Old Camping Song

Wow! Scary birds there, Katy. When birds get in a nasty "funk" you'd best look out. Nicely expressed. Love and peace. Regis

You have just seen the first wave of nature's wrath about to be unleashed upon mankind AND womankind, don't you know? This first wave of the "scouting party" is gathering valuable material to take back to headquarters for study. It will not be long before nature vents her wrath (I know I already said that word, so sue me) nd if you think Alfred Hitchcock's theory was bad you just wait until a herd of thundering moose(es?) bear down upon your sleepy little village.
