Gone with the Wind

Visible crew/equipment: When the O'Hara family does their prayer you see two boom mike shadows on the ceiling. (00:14:15)

Visible crew/equipment: When Mammy catches Scarlett trying on a pretty bonnet when she is supposed to be in mourning, when the camera pans wide to show the room, in the mirror on the wall behind Scarlett you can see the shadow of the grip holding the mic above Scarlett.

Character mistake: When Melanie and Scarlett are talking with an (off-screen) wounded Confederate soldier, the soldier says he hasn't heard from his brother since Bull Run. Only Northerners refer to that battle as Bull Run; Southerners have always referred to it as Manassas.

Trivia: After Margaret Mitchell's (author of "Gone with the Wind") husband saw the scene with the wounded soldiers in Atlanta he is reported to have said "if we had had that many soldiers, we wouldn't have lost the war in the first place."

Question: I read in the trivia section that something falls out of a tree while the letters "Gone with the Wind" go across the screen. I watched the movie and it's true, but does anyone have any information about it? (Was there any controversy? What was the object? Did they try to edit it out? etc.).

Chosen answer: It looks to me like a bird flying from the tree to the ground. Nothing controversial there and no reason to edit it out.
