Katrina Smith was living a city lifestyle in Melbourne, Australia, when Covid hit. Fearing a lockdown, she packed up and rented a place on the Surf Coast of Victoria.
She started posting videos of the birds that showed up on her balcony. Those birds quickly found online fame, notching up millions of views on TikTok and Instagram.
Now she's left with the dilemma of whether or not to return to the city at all.

  • Birds on TikTok now?, oh please someone get Jamoriquai back in to do a 'virtual insanity' 2021 remix/edit/version because if he thought the internet was bad enough, then that was the tip of the iceberg for him, he should have waited 20 years on when Instagram and TikTok addicted the world, because this is real virtual insanity, the internet back in the turn of the millennium was nothing compared to what is literally the virtual insanity of the present day with social media taking over the world, SOCIAL MEDIA, INSTAGRAM, TIK TOK, 21ST CENTURY VIRTUAL INSANITY

  • Would China TikTok carry piggy back hypnotic suggestions?Its something found on INworlds,podcasts and amazon prime.The victim even got a email from Amazon asking why the victim wasn’t using his amazon prime entitlement.He avoids the media because some criminals are using piggy back frequencies to play comments.Recently “ I told you!”The victim the world really wants to hear those behind this 15 years or longer of victimisation to justify their actions in court. They will loose because it’s illegal,authorities or health workers with collaborators does not mean any harassment with a television narcissist becomes legal.It’s unlawful every hack,stalking electronic devices the psychological campaign all to be read in court by lawyers we recently saw in Minnesota.They will loose in any English or American courts and they hide because to be exposed is loose their bullying power and legal action will start.Exposing the scientist,authorities the collaborators the employer all television industry will see this human rights crime in court. In 2007 the victim asked for help and all he got was liars controlled or will for the authority figures to say” you can’t prove it!” I’m sure any judge in court would want to hear why they lied and continue to use frequencies to inflict manufactured schizophrenia and psychological stalking for years on their victim of human exploitation.They will loose in court.Why is a victim of this employed?So they continue to abuse the victim and use his lone worker office as a psychological cage to run controlled bullying by psychopaths who think it’s funny.It’s dehumanising to hears manufactured artificial schizophrenia messages everyday,to hears a shout from speeding cars,to hear tweety bird or pigeon bird voices for years saying “ where joking ######”.If not for this,the victim would have a wife and children and one collaborator recently treated for cancer,related to the victim who of had nephews and nieces,big loving hugs for their uncle but no!He would rather collaborate and sycophant for for people and their not friends their liars and criminals involved in torturing a man without bruises.Their dirty toxic evil see must be exposed,they must with all Collaborators be arrested.It’s a secret,a secret that needs exposing by sad,psychopaths who think being in television or authority type jobs gives some immunity,it doesn’t.

  • The birds of Australia are amazing. Back in the day, when I visited for a six month bicycle tour I'll never forget the sound of the Kookaburra's call in the morning when I woke up in my tent while primitive camped in the bush. The huge flocks of pink and grey Galah's were also memorable. Pretty amazing country, but sadly, they are right on the front lines of global warming (as they were for ozone depletion).

  • I'm in centre of Sydney and all those species of birds and more visit my balcony, they come and say hello from the bushes on the sides of the street when I go for a walk, they come right up when you sit in the park. The things is, nobody feeds them, it's not about food, there is plenty of food on the trees even in the centre of our cities, they are just playful and curious. Different species hang out together, tease each other, clearly birds have a sense of humour. The thing about the centre of Sydney is that nobody has cats, so they have no preditors and they are just so confident.

After that they just disappeared and never came back! 😐 I suspect they got killed or they have gone with their wild friends. That's my childhood memories
