Beware of aggressive crows

Posted by Geeky Swedes on May 27th, 2010

Each springtime crows become loud, aggressive and territorial.

Deepballard writes this warning in the forum:

Was walking south on 32nd, just before 62nd, when a crow dive bombed me from a tree, attacking my head. I thought someone had thrown something at my head until I heard the wings and saw the crow flying back up into the tree. Has this happened to anyone else? I know crows are territorial- so look out at that corner (west side of the street).

The crow scratched Deepballard on the head and drew blood, which the poster cleaned up with hydrogen peroxide. Deepballard asks, “Anyone know if crows carry communicable diseases?”

    “If you want to do a quick tour of the four main Disney Theme Parks,
    I’d recommend 5 days; one for each Theme Park plus an extra
    day to go back to either Epcot or the Magic Kingdom, both of which
    are difficult to do in only one day. The FERC has a tremendous
    amount of pipeline experience, as they are responsible
    for the oversight of natural gas pipeline projects.

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog
    that’s both equally educative and interesting, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is something which too few people are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy that I came across this during my hunt for something
    regarding this.

    The early carriers operated by thee Royal Navy were equipped with a combination
    fighter-dive bomber aircrfaft called the Skua as weol
    as biplanes armmed with bombs or torpedoes such as thhe famous
    Swordfish. The German forces had been bogge dowwn bby tthe Russian winter, the Russian victory at Stalingrad
    and then the subsequent spring rain and mud. Tugboats are
    used for the same reason, to pull ships or all sea going structures that cnnot
    move on their own.

    Crows can be dangerous if you are in their way specially in summer seasons. They may mistake you as enemies. Or i think this is because of over cutting trees and destroying their nests. They want revenge on humans
