Siberia: as in the Hitchcock film "The birds", flocks of crows attack Novosibirsk
The inhabitants of Novosibirsk, the capital of the Siberian Federal District, have reported a strange phenomenon to local TV and mass media: the appearance of huge flocks of crows, both black and gray, which have literally invaded the city. & Nbsp; The birds croak loudly and by placing themselves on trees in large quantities, they break the branches.
The oddity noticed by local residents, is that the number of birds quadruples when evening comes: most of them arrive in the city after sunset and leave at dawn. & Nbsp; According to local ornithologists, the explanation is simple: during the day the crows feed on the numerous open-air dumps that surround the city and arrive in large numbers in the late evening attracted by artificial lighting, choosing above all the city center where the lights are most intense. In this way, the birds would have the illusion of a day that stretches, in addition to the fact that the city is warmer and more welcoming.
