Birds On A Wire

 I snapped this photo yesterday morning, pre-dawn, at an intersection in Brownsville, Texas. There isn't anything photographically appealing about this picture. But, what is pretty cool about it are the hundreds of birds perched on the wires overheard.
Every wire was covered with birds, all facing the same direction.

Just an unusual, fun little sighting to start the day!

894, if I counted correctly... :)

Reminds me of a movie.....

Cari, is that 894 with or without the 4 birds perched atop the Highway 77 sign?

ONeal said...

Bonnie, yes! At first, I thought you meant the movie "Bird on a Wire". But then it dawned on me, you probably meant "The Birds"! Had not even thought about that movie. Good connection!

I'll bet it was noisy, wasn't it?:)

looks like a bad place to park your car overnight. I wonder if there are good car washes in the area. :D

Cari said...

On second thought, I wonder where birds will sit once we all go cellular...

ONeal said...

Kendra, I don't know, my ears weren't awake yet. Ha!

Brenda, agreed. If there ARE car washes there, they'd be very profitable, I imagine. :)

Cari, ha ha! Good one!
