I was watching a video from youtube. The video was on a hippo picking on a crocodile in a safari park. Tourists were attracted by the rare scene.
A woman noticed birds around murmured this:
Look at all the birds over there. They are almost watching.
I know the meaning of 'almost' but I cannot make sense out of it with this sentence.
To me, there are only two choices for watching action: watch or not watch. What's the 'almost watching'?
