"Unbelievable! Invasion of the blackbirds," Tami Denny said.

Hannah Bailey is in charge of the bird collection at the Houston Zoo and says the blackbirds gather in large groups to find food, search for warmth as the season changes, and for safety.

"They are part of our environment and help with insect control throughout our area, so while they might be messing up your car, remember they are eating bugs and mosquitoes, so be happy for that," Bailey added.
