Your experience is much better than my recent experience with hundreds, perhaps thousands, of birds swarming the massive holley tree in my front yard.
A week ago, the tree was loaded with berries in a vain attempt to procreate, when the swarm attacked it with truly inhumane violence. Protected by my
double hung picture window, which at times I was concerned about, I stood there mesmerized by the sight. Birds chaotically flying one way, then
another. Some landing, some swooping, some just flying by. None were at peace. All were voraciously chomping the once beautiful red berries the tree
had to offer.
As I stood there, one bird flew directly into the window not at all caring that I was standing there, knocking itself senseless, and then flying off.
Then another, then another, then ten others, and so on.... This went on for hours. All in all, I estimate that between 100 - 200 birds had their
noggins at least dented a little, further diminishing their pea sized brains.
Then, as one, they all fly away presumably on to attack other targets in their path south. All I'm left with is a beautiful tree stripped of it
berries with no hope of procreation, ten million prickly holley leaves on the ground to tip toe around, feathers piled up on the window sill like tiny
snow drifts, and smudges all over the window waiting for me to clean it.
Spring, how wondrous!
