DES MOINES, IA – Bird watching can be fun. Something the whole family can get into. A chance for us to watch nature while nature watches us.
But, as we all know, sometimes our fine-feathered friends can turn into fast-flying fiends.
Submitted for your consideration: an early bird waiting to catch a two-legged worm.
In Des Moines, Iowa, a blackbird is attacking anyone who gets too close to its territory.
“I actually felt the claws grab my hair and head right there. It kind of pulled a little,” said one victim.
Whether it’s a knock on the head or a pull of the hair, being brained by a bird is always an unwanted surprise.
“It’s swooping just about at anybody,” noted a wary witness. “So if you’re lucky it’s on someone else’s trail, and it’ll leave you alone.”
Submitted for your consideration: a blackbird sitting in the day and night. All your life, you were only waiting for this moment to arrive.
