Heavied by the mob

This happened a while back but my mind just recalled it. I was riding along when I heard an insistent murmuring above.I looked up and there were 10 thousand cockatoos roosted along the phone wires.Well, it seemed 10 thousand. It was probably 200 or so.It was 199 too many. I can handle the occasional blast from an off-in-the-distance bird but, holy cats, that's too much. I nervously slid to a halt then turned to flee lest they go from murmuring to murder noise which is what a cockatoo sound like when screeching; it sounds like murder. Two hundred of them would sound like genocide.The cockatoo; looks great, sounds horrid and is best avoided.
