Even Hitchcock Would Be Blown Away By This Swarm Of Birds

This is the extraordinary moment that thousands of birds are seen circling a Texas highway and swooping across the road in all directions.

In a scene recalling Alfred Hitchcock’s horror film The Birds, drivers find the sky above them suddenly darkened by an enormous flock.

The footage, filmed in Mesquite on the outskirts of Dallas, Texas, shows an intersection which birds are said to visit by the thousands every year.
