Attack Bird DIVES on the Fireball!

So there we were, minding our own business when THWACK!! It all started like this…

We were at the Coffee Bean yesterday in the Bu, having coffee duh, when we saw this radical suicide bird attacking people! Well, after a full observation, I decided to get a closer look. Upon inspection… and risking my life no less, this little black mongrel swooped at me several times before it actually connected on my shoulder. And once it did that, it did it over and over again. So, I pulled out my camera to get a shot and investigate further. (I had the reverse mode going to see if I could catch him in the act!)

What I didn’t know was that the lil’ birdie’s nest was near and he was letting me know that he wasn’t happy with me being so close. So, after several “taps,” I went back to my joe and watched as the bird gave the tiny warnings to everyone that passed by. The best one was the muscle bound motorcyclist that got tapped and turned to find no one there. It happened a second time and the look on his face was like… “I think I need to go back to my shrink.”

The bird tapped and swooped for about an hour that we watched. Every one of them hilarious. Big thanks to Jean Cherie for taking the shots!
