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.


  1. Birds freak me out.

    Today there were 6 blackbirds stanging in the middle of the road. As I approached with my car I thought they would fly off. They didn't all. Just sat there staring at my car coming at them.

    I was the one who swerved to miss them. I looked in the rear view mirror and one was still watching me.

    Creaped me out.

  2. first, I thought of this post yesterday when my day was plagued with crows.
    second, hello? where have you been?
