I experienced my own personal version of "The Birds" during my run today. The large amount of rain we've had lately brought all sorts of bugs, worms, etc. to the surface. This, of course, attracted hundreds of birds to the open areas of the electric transmission line easement the trail runs through. As I ran past and disturbed them, they all took to the air and, voila!- flashback to the movie. Now I'm no Tippi Hedren, but for a few moments this evening, I could certainly identify with her character, because it was definitely freaky being surrounded by all those birds! I'm just glad I made it through bird-poop-free!
