Life Imitating Art

My worst nightmare….Hitchcock’s The Birds comes true! According to a recent post from Dave Pollard on How to Save the World entitled,  Increased Bird Aggressiveness: Is Something Ominous Going On? there has been an increase in aggressive behavior among birds that is especially noteworthy because the aggressors are smaller than the prey. All the more ominous perhaps is the recent story in the Christian Science Monitor that he references which reports an increase in bird attacks on humans. Oh, I just knew this could happen…been worrying for years.

Trivia from IMDb (The Internet Movie Database):

Rod Taylor claimed that the seagulls were fed a mixture of wheat and whiskey. It was the only way to get them to stand around so much.

The film does not finish with the usual "THE END" title because Alfred Hitchcock wanted to give the impression of unending terror. Like the swooping mockingbird in Raleigh, NC from the CSM story?Mockingbird
