VERY normal for Texas; those things are everywhere, lol! Lived a number of years in that state, and saw them all the time. Cool footage, right over the road, and a bit distracting, but I can't imagine why anyone would find that abnormal.

are those birds from mexico? I don`t think we can build a wall tall enough to keep "these" illegals out.


No. These are American birds that go down to Mexico for vacation, and now they are on their way back North.

If you build a high wall, you'll just spoil all their fun.

Perhaps a result of earth's magnetic field that is weakening/reversing and the magnetic poles that are on the move?

Or perhaps it's just normal migratory behavior, as has been stated several times already.

Last week a flock of grackels past through my neighborhood. They covered the trees. Thousands of them. At one point they were flying right overhead and the sky was a black smear for twenty seconds. That doesn't sound long but count it out and realize the sky was black with them the entire time. Easily the largest flock I've ever seen.
They were here for a few days. Destroyed my car !

Look closer you'll see purple and blue. Like oil on a puddle.

I think starlings and grackels are the same bird. Not 100% sure though.

Nope they are similar. The ones here are actually the starlings. Whoda thunk it?

OP should go to a lake during a mayfly hatch.


Oh yeah,
I lived in Cleveland in the early 70's, and remember millions of dead Mayflies everwhere, and the birds looked like they were having the feast before the Apocalypse. Even at night, if you were around the overhead lights of a gas station, the Mayflies were swirling in the light, while the birds circled it , picking them off. Thanks for the memory.

Forgot: There were bats as well. And poop?... holy....

Well we all know there's nothing fancier than a dead bird on your head


At least this story doesn't involve mass birds dropping dead from the sky.

Wow, we both thought of that at the same time, and I was editing my post to that effect. ATS network.

I love watching bats in the backyard..last few years I have seen more than usual.
Good critters to have around.

Does that ball of tinfoil thing work?

So, what kind of birds would these have been in Cleveland?
I don't know birds well, but most of these were big and black, there were some crows...
Would they be related to these Texas Grackles, in any way?

I'm not sure I'm in Canukistan and no bird expert

Sounds like crows, we have lots of crows..very smart and they never forget. Nuisance birds like Pigeons as well as Seagulls..they drop bombs like a small dog.
Surprising amount of Bald Eagles. So cool to see them fishing along the river..crows attack them too..crazy ballsy birds.
