Seattle update: all the crows and seagulls in my area started sounding all at once with no explanation or obvious reason behind it. Also, I think you would enjoy the pit story. When you are up for stories without a satisfying ending let me know.
Not to alarm you but your probably had a mircroquake. Or there was a bird of prey you didn’t see, but when I lived in CA the birds would all freak at once if there was a mini-tremor, but the humans might not notice.
Please tell me of the Pit story?
