Birds Swarm Downtown Shreveport [VIDEO]

Over the weekend, it was almost like they were re-making an Alfred Hitchcock movie!  If you’ve lived here longer than a year, you already know that every now and then we’ll be invaded by birds, mostly black birds, and at times the swarm, like the one in this video, will be so thick, they’ll be almost deafening.  

I’m not sure if they still do it, but several years ago, in an effort to stop the destruction left behind by these swarms, volunteers in the Southern Hills area around Ridgewood Middle School, armed with shotguns and “blanks,” would surround one of these swarms and fire the blanks into the air for several days straight until the birds would leave the area.

This swarm was in downtown Shreveport on Saturday, July 5, 2014, and its easy to imagine what kind of surprises could be “dropped” on unsuspecting visitors.

***Careful now, the language in it is pretty rough in a couple of spots.
