If I were a biologist, which I'm not obviously, I would totally study why the birds seem to converge where the 820 and the 35 cross. I believe there are something like 10,000 birds that all fly into this area and land on the ground or on the electric poles etc. It fascinates me! The birds end up on the power lines so close together that the line is completely covered by bird and the ground almost looks black with birds all sitting on the grass. Then all of a sudden, they all launch themselves and there are thousands of birds darkening the sky. I want to know why they do this. It seems weird to me. Especially since like 1/2 mile in any direction there are almost no birds at all. So weird.
