VIDEO: Hundreds of birds take off from beach on Siesta Key

SARASOTA (WWSB) - Mark Vance is a very brave man!

He shared this video with us on our Facebook page. He took the video Wednesday on Siesta Key, south of the public beach.

He said it was a scary experience, being in the center of a swirling vortex of flapping wings. Watch the video until the end - a bird almost hits him!

Anyone else reminded of Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Birds"? Watching the video you half expect them to turn on Mark and start chasing him down the beach!
