There was one helluva storm here a little while ago. At one point, there was hail. But, the horrifying thing was a black bird was on the deck railing through it all. I honestly don't know how it held on. The bird was being pummeled by rain and wind and I captured it in a short video. I stopped recording moments before the hail was hitting him.
I kept mentally reaching out to him to come toward the house where he would have been under shelter. He finally got the opportunity to fly off into the trees at the fence line.
Here's the link to watch the video: https://spaces.hightail.com/space/dsmNW1KqTC
He probably has one heck of a headache!
