Ok I'll contribute to your thread. I live in Texas in San Antonio, which is about 165 miles from Corpus Christie. Now I have never in my 41 years
witnessed what I did last Thursday.
I was talking with my neighbor, and we saw a whole lot of larger birds swarming and flying in a circular motion. At first I thought they were a flock
of hawks, as I have seen that behavior with hawks before, but as they got closer we heard their cry, and they were seagulls.
Yes, that's right seagulls, and flying in a frenzied tornado like formation around, and around. I was shocked, as we have never seen seagulls this
far away from the coast.
What is even stranger, is that as they were approaching, several that were flying in this frenzied circular formation, suddenly broke loose, and
started flying straight away from the formation.
I have never seen a single seagull in my life in San Antonio, much less several hundred. What do you think this could mean?
I told my next door neighbor, who goes to the coast a lot, and the first thing he said was maybe the world is coming to an end!
Then, of course, joker that he is, he said they might have the swine flu.
Anyway, very, very strange to say the least, and I ran inside to get my camera, but by the time I got back out, and turned it on, I only managed to
capture a brief few frames where they are flying out of sight line.
Maybe someone has some insight on this strange behavior by the seagulls.
