The Birds

- I still remember seeing Alfred Hitchcock's classic horror film The Birds at a drive-in theater in El Paso Texas when I was kid. It was the stuff of nightmares. I often think of that movie when I see the thousands of black birds that converge on the area near the Newtown Road exit on I-264 to roost each night. The birds fill the tops of all the trees, and line the power lines, traffic signals and rooftops all around. Hoepefully this pictures brings back your memories of that movie and if you haven't seen it, put in your Netflix queue and of course sleep well. ;) Canon G11, 1/15 sec @ f/5.0, ISO 400.

Spring is a perfect time to watch this! The large flocks are everywhere!
