HITCHCOCK MUST HAVE HAD A GRACKLE EXPERIENCE – PHOTOS BY GARRY ARMSTRONG

As hundreds of Grackles circled our house and set up watch posts in the oak trees, I was pretty sure I’d seen this scene before. In a movie. Hmm. Could it be “The Birds”? Garry got some good pictures of them in the trees and the air. All I got were dead oak leaves. I feel I should mention that, from the ground, a leaf clinging to an oak limb could be a bird. Or a leaf. Given my eyesight, I would need binoculars to tell the difference.

  1. They are perfect for playing scary scenes in the movie.

  2. They do look a tad creepy lurking up there in the trees.

  3. I took very similar photos like these but with a squirrel. We get grackles around here but I’ve never seen this many at one time.
