Nesting

I saw a small, black bird attempt to land in the part of a woman's hair this morning. I wondered if maybe the bird saw the strip of scalp and thought it was food or a nest. The woman wondered if she'd gotten pooped on.

But then. While waiting at for the shuttle, two of my fellow commuters remarked that they too had been attacked by small, black birds that very morning.

Ominous.

And many, many miles away, a small dead black bird was found in my school gym. Very scary.

You won't know whether you weren't supposed to laugh until it is too late ...

we watched Black birds attack pasers by on Third street when I worked in SF. they were protecting nests
people ended up wearing hats or helmets to walk that section of sidewalk. I got hit once, really hurts and I think they may have been grabbing hair for nests as well as defending.

Peace
