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.
