The Birds

So holy crap!!! I was driving from Cedar Falls to Ames this morning at like 6:30 am when all of a sudden no less than 8,000 black birds came spiraling out of the ditch in the "school of fish" fashion. They were flying so low as I approached the beast I unconsciously held my hand up in front of my face and squinted my eyes to brace for the probable impact. I seriously thought I was going to kill like 25 birds and then slide off the road into a ravine from all the viscera. Alas, that was not my fate; just a mere threat on my life and sanity. Until next time birds... I'm keeping my eye on you.

P.S. a riddle

This is the second part of the riddle. There are two parts; the first is to find the 1st of a 3 part answer and the 2nd is to find the next riddle. :) Happy Trails

So here we are together again
you and me, my miscible friend

To enter my body would be a treat
by any other name would smell as sweet

above the northernmost US frame
there is no 'e' in your name

Thanksgiving is key to play this game
the first of the brand one not so tame.
