    As soon as I started mowing this afternoon 6 juvenile Robins started swooping and diving towards me and the mower, came real close a few times. The whole time I mowed the yard for about an hour. New experience for me. It was an open yard with only 2 large trees in the back but they started buzzing me in the front yard. Weird.

    I had a couple of geese attack me on the mower I had my trash picker stick wacked the ever living sh*t out of the one after it bit me and kicked the other one hard enough for it to go away.

    I was checking out a yard one time and there was a sign: BEWARE OF GEESE! I thought that was pretty funny haha. I got half way between the house and my truck. Out from around the house came a pack of wild rabid attack geese:eek: I took off running back to the truck and they were nipping at my ankles :laugh:

    And people ask me why I carry a badminton racket?
    It’s for the birdies!

    I have a coupla condos that have a wide open field behind-we get barn swallows that will circle while we mow, picking up insects in-flight, pretty cool to watch.
