Bird Invasion Brings Real-Life Horror to Kentucky City

Animals  (tags: animalwelfare, animals, protection, wildlife, bird invasion )

Millions of birds have descended on a small Kentucky city this winter, fouling the landscape, scaring pets and raising the risk for disease in a real-life version of Alfred Hitchcock's horror film, "The Birds."

it's only fair considering the real-life horror millions of humans descending on nature have brought by fouling the landscape with their waste, scaring wildlife, and spreading disease and destruction.

Congrats to all of the above! This is a very natural blackbird roost and if it disturbs the poor humans, too darn bad! They will move on in due time. My advice would be to enjoy them as this phenomenon will soon be rare thanks to man's intrusion on nature.
