Have You Seen These Creepy Things Around Midland? Prepare To Be Freaked Out!
There are very few things that freak me out aside from being afraid of the dark. I'm not afraid of heights, I'm a roller coaster fanatic and I've jumped out of a plane before. I'm not afraid of snakes, bears, or creepy crawlies but what I saw the other day when I was simply minding my business putting in gas in my ride totally freaked me out!
What in the blackbird high hell is happening here? Are they blackbirds? Are they crows? Are those 2 the same thing? Who really cares? There are like a million of them! And they are so loud with their squawking that it makes it that much creepier.
What or who are they looking for? Two things popped in my head when I saw these noisy blackbirds. #1 don't 'dark' birds signify something bad? Is it just an old wives tale that when you see a lot of blackbirds like this it is a bad omen...or worse, that someone or something dead is close by?
The second thing that crossed my mind, (I truly couldn't fill up fast enough), the first 'scary' movie I was ever allowed to watch was a movie from way back in the 60's, starring actress Tippi Hedren called The Birds. I blame that movie for my dislike of blackbirds.
Super campy and cheesy but it will scar you for life with blackbirds. Don't believe me? Check out his scene from the movie and the photos I took that day. I'm not quite sure if blackbirds are capable of this but I sure don't want to hang out in front of Walmart in Midland to find out in case that's where these suckers hang out!
