The Birds

While sitting in my library this afternoon

I became aware of a ruckus outside the window.

A flock of blackbirds and starlings had descended upon

my bird feeder and were chattering away in

the two nearby dogwood trees.

They don't seem to be the patient sort.

Alfred Hitchcock had it right:

beware when the birds come around.
