Friday afternoon submission for the "post more threads" demand from the Dark Tower.
We were talking about the Alfred Hitchcock movie The Birds. I mentioned that Hitch wanted to film the last scene with thousands of birds perched on the Golden Gate Bridge. That would have sent an even stronger "it's the end of the world" message.
That discussion led to a general discussion about birds. Some people just do not like our feathered friends. I will admit that there are some freaky birds, such as the common turkey vulture. Yuck. Woodpeckers are kinda cool. Robin eggs seem to say "gentle life". Crows are disgusting.
Some of the best bird-watching takes place just east of metro Toledo. The Ottawa Wildlife Refuge is a hugely-popular location for certain types of migratory birds. Another very popular place for bird-watching is just a few miles from my Swanton, OH, homestead.....Oak Openings Metro Park.
So......what is your take on birds? Spooky? Cool? What say you?
