No, not the Alfred Hitchcock movie. Rather, an invasion of Grackles in Kerrville, Texas.
One time I left my car in the San Antonio airport, cleverly parked under a tree for shade. Or so I thought. I turns out that was a favorite tree for Grackles. When I got back from my trip, I literally could not see out my windshield.
Beware of the Grackles!
P.S. Evan commented below about the noisiness of the Grackles. Yes, indeed. They are obnoxiously loud. You can hear them on this video clip:

Thanks for your willingness to make a comment. Note: I do not moderate comments before they are posted, though they are automatically screened for profanities, spam, etc., and sometimes the screening program holds comments for moderation even though they're not offensive. I encourage open dialogue and serious disagreement, and am always willing to learn from my mistakes. I will not delete comments unless they are extraordinarily rude or irrelevant to the topic at hand. You do need to login in order to make a comment, because this cuts down on spam. You are free to use a nickname if you wish. Finally, I will eventually read all comments, but I don't have the time to respond to them on a consistent basis because I've got a few other demands on my time, like my "day job," my family, sleep, etc.
