This reminds me of when Alfred Hitchcock came out with the movie "The
Birds". This movie ( yes I know I am dating myself) was filmed in
California and near the Airforce Base that had some nesting black birds
living near a cross walk and they would swoop down and attack those waiting
to cross the street.
