Filming The Birds!

This photo that I took in our backyard reminds me of one of my favorite movies, Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds. (Click on the previous link to read 25 Things You Didn't Know About Alfred Hitchcock's Terrifying Classic.)

Below is a fascinating video about the locations used for filming The Birds. It shows scenes from the movie and then compares how the locations look today. Some things have changed a lot, but  surprisingly, others haven't changed much at all.

Happily, the video includes the scene where Tippi is driving on the backroads of Bodega Bay to deliver the parakeets she bought at the pet store. As she swerves left to right, the birds do too. Funny!
