Has anyone else noticed anything odd about the animals today (10/21)? My dogs were hyper this morning and actually didn't wait for me to let them out to use the bathroom. About an hour ago my mother called me and said that she had a bird fly into the window so hard feathers flew off of it. About 10 mins later she called back saying that 4 more had done the same thing. She does not see any other birds outside even on the feeders....
Anyone have any theories or am I just thinking to hard at 9 am?

This used to happen every year about this time where I last lived. We learned (from the local Audubon Society) that it was due to the birds eating fruit that had over-ripened and had actually begun to ferment on the ground. They were flying drunk and not seeing windows.

All three of my dogs have kept me up all night....my male cats wouldnt come in and my female and her 2 kittens wont get off my darn toy shelf! My bird spike wont talk to me or anyone else and if you dont tell him good morning or hello when you walk by his cage he goes nuts normally( he hasnt eaten anything either). I live by a river so I normally have ton's of birds out back that I feed in the morning and there is nothing!!!! My frogs are all gone from my pond too...something is up. I thought I was just being paranoid, or over thinking too

What area are you in, xoxo? Sometimes animals act strange before an earthquake.

Well I got earthquake insurance right after the one earlier this year. But an earthquake was my first thought too. Lets hope its just a case of drunken birds though.

Nothing going on around here. I didn't see to many birds when I was outside a few minutes ago. But the dog is no more hyper than usual.

Also, keep in mind it is around a full moon. I know our cats go bonkers around the full moon.

What was that truely *awful* film where birds start flying into things because the earth's magnetic field is dissapearing? It sounds very similar.

That was two hours of my life I'll never get back....

Friends do not let avian friends fly drunk.

Your mother must have some very clean windows. In reality, it is odd to have more than one bird strike a window at a time. This is the start of the migration of many species heading south also. Could have been some tired and confused birds or something more ominous. Migratory animals do rely heavily on an"internal compass" if you will. I would imagine that any disruption in the compass would clearly be a detriment.

I have seen those birds, cedar waxwings, down in South Carolina fall out of the trees stone cold drunk. First time I saw it I thought they were dead. Quite funny actually. Slowly, one by one , they wake up and stagger off.

One of the best ever! Love Alfred Hitchcock...

Op I am sorry about what happened to your Mom, that is a horrible thing to have to deal with. I agree with the post about the drunken birds though, it makes perfect sense.

on an average day i get at least one bird flying into a window at my house , sometimes 2 or more a day. Its been going on since i moved to this house 6 years ago so i dont think its anything special. Just maybe bad eyesight on the birds parts.

i prepared taxes during the first 4 months of the year and this happened with the birds then.

one day after i got to work, i noticed the window had a big chip out of it and that the piece of glass was laying on the sill. i opened the window and picked up the piece of glass and looked at it, then stuck my head out the window and sure enough, right there on the ground was a dead bird.

i didn't think that was too weird at first so i went to my computer and sat down, preparing to start my day. after a few hours of work i heard a bang and then a repeated tapping. i went to the other window and there was a bird attacking the window lol. it was flying into it, backing up and flying into it again, over and over. when it got tired of that it would get on the window sill and peck the glass. the bird did that all day long for 2 or 3 days then i didn't see it anymore.

We have a Cardinal who shows up to attack our windows every morning. It's always the same windows, same time of day, too. We think he's attacking his reflection or something - he'll land and just tap the window really hard.

My dog is acting normal. My cat woke me up around 4 am meowing like crazy so I put him outside. I do have a Cardinal that keeps smacking into our sun room windows but it has been doing that since summer, everyday all day without fail. I'm surprised it hasn't killed itself yet. I've chalked it up to it seeing it's reflection and thinking it's another male Cardinal and trying to attack it. Starts every morning and it's still doing it now at 4:30 in the afternoon.

The one here doesn't land and peck at the window. He actually smacks into it, goes back to the bush near it then takes another run at it.
