Hitchcockian sounds of Autumn and Winter


This is the corner of 6th and Lamar (Whole Foods, Waterloo Records), one of the places where birds congregate in great numbers in the Fall/Winter. Every tree or wire that you can see, as well as a lot of ledges and roof tops, are chock full of birds. The sound is incredible. I know of another area like this right next to Threadgill's on Riverside, and one at the intersection of MOPAC and Wm. Cannon. This area of Central Texas hits maximum bird population in November (by my perception).

oh yes, in summer it's bats, in winter it's birds.

I wish we had more bats near our backyard so they could dine on the damn mosquitoes. Bat Feast! Bring Your Bat-Friends!
