Hitchcock’s The Birds in Real Life

Alfred Hitchcock loosely adapted a 1952 short story into his 1963 film The Birds, but it was also inspired by a real life event in 1961.

It took quite some time to figure out what caused the birds’ behavior, which is explained in this video from Popular Science. -via Digg
