ISLE OF MULL, SCOTLAND - JUNE 13: An adult white-tailed eagle, also known as a sea eagle, is mobbed by a hooded crow on June 13, 2019 on the Isle of Mull, Scotland. The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB), a British conservation charity, is spending the week tagging the birds and as part of a broad ongoing conservation effort to record the population of breeding pairs of white-tailed eagles across Scotland. There are currently around 22 breeding pairs of white-tailed eagles on the Isle of Mull, with the first successful breeding pair occurring in 1985. The eagles are the largest in the UK and the fourth-largest in the world, with a wingspan up to eight feet, and are more closely related to Old World vultures than their island neighbors, golden eagles. They were hunted to extinction in the UK in the early 19th century, with the last bird shot in the Hebrides 1918. Scotland is home to around 130 breeding pairs, whose presence supports a tourist economy of around £5m GBP in the Isle of Mull and £2.4m GBP for the Isle of Skye, farther up Scotlands Western Coast. The close monitoring of this apex predator is part of a re-introduction programme run by the Roy Dennis Wildlife Foundation in partnership with Forestry England. The rewilding scheme hopes to release around 60 birds on the Isle of Wight over five years. The project has courted controversy from some members of National Farmers Union (NFU) who worry that the birds may take lambs, but the programme's proponents argue that any impact on livestock is likely to be minimal due to the abundance of other food sources.

This is a straight up FEAR of mine!

If you hated the movie “Birds,” you are not going to like this story. Seeing a few birds together isn’t uncommon, but when you see thousands of birds all together in one place… it can be quite intimidating.

That is exactly what happened at a Kroger in Houston, TX. Thousands of black birds filled the parking lot, landing all over the ground and on all the cars in the parking lot as well. Don’t believe me? Check out the video!

Thousands of black birds - aka grackles - take over parking lot in Houston

Grackles aren't an uncommon sight (or sound) in Houston, but this is just crazy! KHOU 11 reporter Brett Buffington recorded this Jan. 29, 2020 at the Kroger ...

If I were in that grocery store, I’d probably be calling myself an Uber home and just wish the best for my car. HOW SCARY!
