The title has nothing to do with the post, except maybe if you stretched your imagination and pretended to be a migratory songbird and you didn't want to land.
I SAW THE BIRDS TODAY!
For a long time I was the only one who could see them. Then came my parents. They came to visit us, I believe it was last February, and we ALL saw them. We (being ever so adventurous, full of Mexican food, and having no place to go) decided to follow them to see what they were doing.
Okay. Now at the risk of losing all of your interest, let me tell you about the birds. Every year, hundred of birds, thousands of birds, million and billions and trillions of birds use the Mississippi River as a giant landmark as they migrate throughout the country. They roost in a lovely place called Shelby Farms, which has plenteous trees and bushes to keep them safe and happy.
We followed them as they flew in for the night. The smell was atrocious, and I don't know who had the bright idea of opening the sunroof, but the sight was amazing. I'm only sorry that I wasn't able to catch a little more on the camera.
Check it out.
Yes, that is me on the audio. As far as I can tell, I'm saying "Oh my gack! Listen to them! They're all, like, shclug, cruising away from us like what the heck is following us!"
No, I don't know what I was thinking. I was a little excited.
It's kind of nifty to see, though.
