Lots of Birds
Lots of Birds was first observed as a weather condition on Season 3 Day 6. This weather is characterized by lots of birds being on and around the field during play. During a game with the Lots of Birds weather type, the Game Log displays various bird-related occurrences and commentary, which is thought to delay the progression of the game.
History of Weather Effects
On Season 7, Day 63, the Game Log displayed the message "The Birds circle ... they peck Jessica Telephone free!". The modification Shelled was removed from Jessica Telephone and replaced with the modification Superallergic.
On Season 9, Day 1 Seattle Garages game, the Game Log displayed the message "A flock of Crows ambush Summers Pony! They run to safety, resulting in an out." This was the first time weather had ever awarded an out. During a different game between the Breckenridge Jazz Hands and the San Francisco Lovers on the same day, the crows were responsible for the third out of the top of the 12th inning, triggering an anomaly known as Crowvertime, where the Lovers were given 16 outs instead of the normal 3.
