That's lovely, chris. Smile Do you know what kind of bird that is? My first thought was vulture since that's the largest type of bird I see on a regular basis but on a closer look it doesn't seem like the right profile.

Not when there nesting. They will have your eyes out.

How to Keep Safe from Swooping Australian Magpies


Australian magpies are notorious for a habit that can cause injury and distress to humans - swooping. This nasty little habit, done to protect the bird's territory when it feels its nest is threatened during nesting season, can result in skin injuries, eye injuries and sometimes chunks of flesh being removed through contact with claws or beak.

Unfortunately, as noted by the Flinders University Research Centre for Injury Studies, people have even died from magpie swooping attacks, such as losing control of a bicycle after a swooping attack to the temple. Hopefully, such a terrible outcome is a very rare instance but even the average swoop is not a fun experience and it is important to take precautions against the possibility by managing our own behaviour, rather than that of the birds.

When Hitchcock made The Birds I don't think he intended for it to be shown as a training video. No

We suffer similar but with seagulls Mad They are brutally vicious & as many properties here have 'desirable' flat roofs, there could be 100s of feathered predators just waiting for you to trot gaily out, unaware of your impending doom pale

well birds are just the remnants of raptor dinosaurs after all. (I think) pale small, intelligent and aggressive.

I thought that second video was gonna be a seagull stealing crisps from people who were eating them. I wasn't expecting him to go into the store and everything. Laughing

Somebody needs to put a pair of red glowing eyes in that unicorn. Faint - so you're not sure it's there but will sneak up on your subconscious.

Well that actually makes sense- I mean I wouldn't expect her to start inventing her own stuff now!

'That Kelpie is both gorgeous and immensly creepy at the same time!'- Amarie

And thats why its best not to go for a ride on one if it offers  pale
