Birds, birds, and birds, all over Texas… And in huge numbers! A news anchor in Houston captured an eerie scene when she stumbled upon an invasion of birds while out getting gas for her car. Between this and the freaky swarm spotted flying in the sky over Dallas earlier this week, we’re beginning to feel a bit uneasy about all these birds. Don’t you?
The first creepy footage was captured by Christine Dobbyn of Houston’s ABC13 on February 2, 2018, at a gas station in Houston, Texas. She wrote as a caption to the spooky video: “I like you birds, but this kind of freaked me out:”

According to a bird experts, this species of creature, known as grackles, were likely drawn to the bright lights of the gas station possibly after their sleep had been disturbed, which may have made them as disoriented as Dobbyn when she spotted them. Here the Youtube video now:
This strange gathering occurred two days before another giant swarm of birds – actually thousands of grackles again – overtook an intersection in the Dallas suburb of Mesquite on February 4, 2018, filling the sky to the point that they resemble a plague of locusts. OMG! That is creepy!
Do you have a grackle problem Texas?
