This morning as I steeped from the curb in front of my house I heard a strange noise.
I looked behind me and there on my neighbor’s roof was a crow pecking at the metal flashing on their roof. I watched him for a minute as I walked and then began pondering something else.
There was a whoosh a few inches from my head as the crow swept past landing on the house to my right.
Man, that crow almost hit me, I thought unsuspectingly.
Then it swooped past me the other direction, actually touching my hair.
Oh shit, I thought as I started to run towards my car.
I got around the corner and half a block up and slowed to a walk. I was just thinking about how weird it is for a crow to attack you from across the street when I felt it beat past me again.
"Ahhhhh! Fuck! Go away!" I squeaked, running the rest of the way and diving into my car.
That crow better not be waiting for me when I get back or I'm gonna... move.
Now, what does one do about an aggressive crow? I live across the street from one of the most popular parks in Seattle; this cannot be good.
