Dear Readers, you may notice the dates of the Blog do not match the Flash Post dates which are in real time. The blog was written in 2009 and saw the light of day 6 months back when my younger daughter discovered it and decided to bring it to you here.

June 4. “Button, Alfred Hitchcock’s Birds still gives me goose bumps whenever I recall scenes from the movie.”


“It shows how vicious birds—for instance crows in this particular movie—can get.”

“Do we have the movie in our library?”

“I think we do. A similar kind of incident was reported from London where a vengeful crow that only attacks blondes has pecked and scratched five female joggers in the past week.”

“How wicked.”

“Just listen to the remaining bit—It lies in wait in trees before dive-bombing its victims in Eltham Park South. A café owner, Colin Jerwood, said: At first I thought it was a one-off  but it doesn’t seem so!”

“It may have had a bad experience with blondes.”

“Or, maybe, the bird is just plain vicious and attacks blondes just for the sake of attacking!”

“What’s so funny about hurting someone?”

“Maybe the crow thinks it’s fun!”


“On the other hand, they are very caring towards their young. I just saw a mother crow lovingly feed her baby. Both were perched on the window ledge where we put out some rice and water every morning.”

“How can you tell the baby crow was being fed by the mother? It could well have been his father.”

“Possibly. I also found some treasures in the bowl of water.”

“Treasures! Like what?”

“This must have been the handiwork of the crows: In the bowl of water, I found a twig, a piece of bread, a twisted bit of wire: I feel this is his way of saying thank you to the provider!”
