Birdland has just left Hobbiton.

From "The Ring Goes South" - the Company on Caradharas:

"It may have been only a trick of the wind...,but the sounds were those of shrill cries, and wild howls of laughter. Stones began to fall from the mountain-side, whistling over their heads, or crashing on the path besides them...

'We cannot go further tonight,' said Boromir. 'Let those call it the wind who will; there are fell voices on the air; and those stones are aimed at us.'

'I do call it the wind,' said Aragorn. 'But that does not make what you say untrue. There are many evil and unfriendly things in the world that have little love for those that go on two legs, and yet are not in league with Sauron, but have purposes of their own. Some have been in this world longer than he.'

There they are again - the Stone Giants. In the film they blame the attack of the mountain on Saruman, but I always like that Tolkien implies that...well..."stuff happens" in Middle Earth.

Makes you wonder what evil was created by Sauron, and what evil he just used to his advantage. For instance, Orcs and Wargs.
