In reply to my past post--
On the third of December on the Cornish coast of England many years ago, the weather changed overnight from a mild autumn to a cold, harsh winter. Nat Hocken, a worker at a farm noticed that the birds appear more restless than usual and told his wife about his curiosity.
The people who lived near Nat didn’t believe him and didn’t take any precautions, but Nat boarded up his whole house, where he and his family were safe from the attack of the birds.
It was a while before the birds’ frenzy settled down, but finally they disappeared, as quickly as they had come. People today are unsure about what caused this unusual behavior of the usually peaceful animals, but some scientists are suggesting that the birds ate something highly intoxicating, such as berries or fungus. In the time that it happened, most people, including Nat, suggested that it was the weather but we’re thinking differently today.
Even though the birds were murderous, they didn’t succeed in wiping out the world because the US Army’s forces were stronger. Had they not been there, humans would probably be living in bubbles to be safe today, or there might not have been any more humans left.
