Continuity mistake: At the beginning, before Melanie walks behind the newsstand, it's an overcast day and she doesn't cast any shadow. As she emerges from the other side of the newsstand she casts several shadows against the wall and floor. The other people walking in front of the pet store are also casting shadows in several different directions. Throughout the film there are numerous changes regarding the casting of shadows between shots. (00:02:00)
Trivia: There is no then-usual "THE END" title card as Alfred Hitchcock wanted to imply that the terror would continue without end.
Question: When the birds attack the town a gas station attendant is hit by a bird and drops the gas hose he is using to fill a car. The gasoline flows down the street and under a car; a man drops a match and lights the gas causing an explosion. Why didn't the gas pump shut off when the man dropped it?
