The last time I saw this many birds in one place was in the very scary Hitchcock movie.  There are always seagulls near the water, but where did these little featherd friends come from?  Although I have to use the term "friends" loosely as I needed a trip to the car wash after their visit.  What a mess on my deck and car.

Very strange indeed.  The birds invaded the neighborhood and were perched on the wires, rooftops and my deck for about 15 minutes.  Then, they flew off and were gone without a trace.

Was it a quick field trip to the ocean?  Or were they migrating south for the winter and needed a short rest stop?  Uninvited and messy.
