Portfolios > Bodega Bay California

These are photos I took in the area where Alfred Hitchcock shot "The Birds," although there were very few birds in the sky that day. I read that Alfred Hitchcock was interested and concerned about birds and was a bird- watcher as a child. It is said that one inspiration for the movie came from reading a newspaper article in 1961 about hordes of dead birds washing up onto the streets in the seaside California town of Capitola.
