It seems that Hitchcock's classic thriller "Birds" has come to life: clouds of black birds are circling over an intersection in an American town and seem to be going to attack a passing vehicle. This happens here every year, but scientists still cannot explain this phenomenon.

Residents of Texas are well aware of the anomalous intersection located in the city of Mesquite. For unknown reasons, this place regularly attracts thousands of birds. Now hordes of birds have attacked the intersection again, after which frightening videos from the scene appeared on the networks.
Everything that is happening is very reminiscent of the classic Alfred Hitchcock thriller "Birds" of 1963.
Scientists can't find the reason why many birds flock here every year at the beginning of February. But the fact remains: every year thousands of birds circle over this intersection, over the flow of cars, cling to poles and trees.
Usually such an invasion happens in early February. At this time, the birds fly to Mexico for the winter. But why they are attracted to this particular intersection is still unknown.
Similar scenes can be observed in this city almost every year, and birds, of course, do not pose a danger to people. Nevertheless, fans of Hitchcock can not get rid of the feeling that the winged creatures are preparing to attack people.
The classic horror film "Birds" was released in 1963. In this picture, Hitchcock refused musical accompaniment, using only real bird sounds and mechanical screeching, which added drama to the picture.
And after more than five decades, this classic picture is amazing. Perhaps because Hitchcock did not explain in any way why the birds attacked the town of Bodega Bay.
