The Birds

Out & About

When I was eight and living in Brigham City, Utah, mom and dad came home one afternoon talking about the birds. I have always loved birds, and all animals actually, but what they were saying about the birds really had me upset. I couldn’t picture birds attacking people, killing them, and eating them. That’s not like any birds I’ve ever seen. Eventually I found out that they were talking about a movie.

Ah, movies. A couple of friends and I used to sneak into the local movie theater to watch movies free since we couldn’t afford the 25¢ ticket.

Ever since then, whenever I’m in the midst of billions and billions of birds, I think of Alfred Hitchcock and “The Birds.”

So when I was at Chollas Lake Park the other day feeding the birds, yep, flashbacks.

    I love all birds except pigeons. I was flocked by a pack of them sitting on a bench in Rome after my husband threw some left pizza crumbs on my backpack. Those things can be savages lol.



    That was a strange movie. I always think about it every fall and winter when I drive down the road and look up and see thousands of birds sitting on the power lines. They do this every year. I don’t know if they actually get warmth from the wires or not, but it is a strange sight to see all of them flapping wings and shuffling back and forth. 🙂
