The Birds Go Splat
The other day, I was walking to my car. As I approached my vehicle, I heard a splat. Then another. I looked around. It wasn’t raining. Nothing seemed to be falling that I could see. Yet, the splatting sounds continued. Then, I looked up.
Above me was a flock of birds. Actually, flock is too weak of a word. There were several HUNDRED crows flying overhead. They were following each other high in the sky and many of them had obviously decided that the spot I was standing on was a restroom. I quickly opened my car door and dove inside. My car had been hit twice, but, luckily, I escaped unharmed.
The next day, I brought my camera in to work to attempt to capture this crow swarm. And capture it I did (though there seemed to be less crows this time).
Have you ever witnessed a swarm of birds like this?
