Our birds are having a lean time in the UK due to the snow. These three in the trees in front of my house seem very "Hitchcockesque" while waiting for food to appear.

ADMIN EDIT:

According to a grip who worked on THE BIRDS virtually all birds in the film DIED of lead poisoning not long after the film wrapped.

For some reason birds had an habit of flying off disrupting filming.

That problem was cured by pouring lead shot gun pellets down their throat so they could not move, much less fly.

True story according to the grip.
