Have you ever been attacked by a Red Winged Blackbird?
Whatever the reason, I ticked-off this foul fowl somehow and it swooped down from its perch to dive bomb my head. Of course I screamed a shrilly scream and ran away. I had to explain to the man walking his Husky that I was fine—I wasn’t being attacked by a park perv or an aggressive squirrel. It was nice of him to be concerned.
The screaming and the flailing arms seemed to deter the bird and it left me alone.
P.S. This episode did nothing to improve my Crazy Dog Walking Lady reputation.
