Those Dirty Birds - 07/15/14
We do stories from time to time about flocks of birds that lite for the evening and make a big mess and a lot of noise. I've done them myself but I was never actually caught up in one of those messes until one day last week while I was off.
My family and I were at Centennial Park after dinner. The kids and I were throwing baseball while my wife checked out the ducks on the lake. I heard the sound of a large flock of birds and caught a glimpse of them moving from one part of the park to some trees near us. I told my family it was time to go but before we could get to the car my wife and son had been "decorated." And then there was my car. Ewww!
It was reminiscent of a scene from an Alfred Hitchcock film in living color. The next time I'm at Centennial Park near dusk, I'm not parking or walking under any trees.
