Talking Psycho Bird!!

In our new apt the gym is about 45 seconds from our door - but you have to walk around the building to get in, the back of the gym faces our apt. My roommate walked to the office the other day, which is across from the gym and later mentioned to me in passing a "psycho bird." So what does he do when he borrows my car? He parks over by the gym.. well guess who got to get up close and personal with "psycho bird"? Yep, you guessed it... ME!! I'm walking to my car yesterday morning and swooosh - this bird comes flying by my head!! At first I didn't think anything of it.. til it came back the other way --- swoooosh!! Ok, so I'm half way to my car, far away from the tree it lives in, I guess it's protecting a nest or something? And I'm thinking it will leave me alone now --- wrong!! It swoops at me 2 more times, coming really close once, and then sits in a tree and WATCHES me get in my car. I close the door and he flies off. Seen my sig lately? ... LOL

Don't mockingbirds love to do that? There is one kind of bird that is worse about it than others, but I can't remember which. Have you guys seen the old Home Video show where the bird attacks a cat and the cat turns a flip?

We rehabbed a Great Horned Owl once. He had a broken wing, so it took a while. I kept him at the clinic and Bub and I would go over there every night to feed him and clean the cage. Bubba would always do the holding while I did the cleaning. ANYway, time finally came for his release so we took him out to the farm my vet owned, and a few other people came with us to watch.

We had him in a box where you could just pull back the flaps on the top and he could take off. Bub put on the welding gloves as a precaution then pulled back the flaps. Out comes this gorgeous, huge bird - and heads straight for Bubba!

Evidently it blamed him for being in captivity for so long. And of course I didn't have the video camera with me for that one!
