Aggressive Birds

Aggressive Grackles

Walking down the Paseo next to the children’s museum in my neighborhood the other day and I was attacked by number of grackles. Every few seconds, one would buzz the top of my head. A couple of times, they knocked my hat off. I kept walking slowly, not wanting to gain more attention. In the end, I was fine.

As I looked back to see the Path of Many Birds that I had moments before successfully crossed, I see this sign. A little too late, sign. A little too late.


Ineffective Sign

Vanessa and I saw this while picking up coffee on the way home from church this morning.

This sign doesn’t seem to be very effective.
