Is there some member who knows something about bird behaviour?
This evening about 9.30pm I went outside. Usually at this time it is completely quiet, barring the background quiet hum of cicadas.
Tonight there was a frenzy of bird noise, much chattering and occasional screeching, a generally frantic and distressed combination of sounds.
My dog went rigid and her hackles stood up. She became super-alert as she does when she thinks there is some sort of threat.
After a few minutes, the noise gradually subsided and all that could be heard was once again the quiet drumming of the cicadas.
This noise would have come from hundreds of birds.
Just wondering what it might all have been about?
