WTF is Up with All the Birds?

Yesterday was hawk day. Today: crows. The pines are filled with 'em. One slammed into the window and scared the living daylights outta me. Another was hopping all over the rooftop with what looked like---but certainly wasn't---a large hunk of cuttlebone. 

This is getting freaky. Waaaay too Hitchcockian. 

I hereby demand that all birds cease the escalated activity in my formerly-serene pine grove.
