Alfred Hitchcock I'm not, but . . .

. . . the digital cameras are so easy to use even a monkey could make a video. Speaking of animals, here's a little video clip of the winged variety. This started on Saturday when we heard a cacophony of church bells and cawing outside our house. This is an historic house we're currently renting in Peoria, IL, by the way, which seems to add to the creepiness of all of this.

To make a long story short, we watched HUNDREDS of huge crows roosting in the trees behind the house across the street. At seemingly scheduled intervals all of them would take off together, virtually recreating a scene from "The Birds." This went on all afternoon with us not realizing that when they left the neighbor's trees they were landing in the ones in OUR BACKYARD. Other than being somewhat annoyed by all the noise and the terror they struck in my tiny dog, we didn't think anymore of it. Until Sunday morning when we opened the blinds and saw CROW POOP everywhere. EVERYWHERE! The cars are covered with the nasty blobs. If you watch closely in my little video you'll see blobs on the sidewalk and blobs on the porch. And you'll see crows! Turn up the audio, enjoy the cawing and the church bells!
