That was cool, although I have seen this multiple times where I live. I live out in the country in Texas, and every once in a while the birds will be
out in force. Actually, a few days ago it got extremely cold and it snowed this mix of ice and slush, and it never snows here, and I was driving down
an FM road that morning, and the birds were swarming all around. I saw dead birds lying on the road because people were apparently hitting them with
their vehicles, as they were so thick, and they kept flying back and forth across the road.
And then another front came in yesterday, and I saw the birds doing the same thing, albeit not as badly. I was wondering if maybe they have to keep
flying to keep from freezing or something. But I don't know. I think the most impressive thing is how they keep from hitting each other. It might
happen and it is just hard to see, but obviously it doesn't happen very often, or on a large scale. It reminds me of a school of fish, as they will
swarm like this, rapidly change direction, etc...Even if you've seen this before, it is still quite a sight.
The craziest thing I've ever seen regarding birds was when this cat I had caught and killed a bird in the front yard. There were a few birds that were
swooping down and attacking the cat, but then all of the sudden a mass of birds showed up, and were swarming over. and swooping down over the cat.
I don't know how they did it, but apparently they called other birds to help or something. I don't remember what kind of birds they were, but I'm
thinking they were blue. It was a long time ago.
