As I walked out my front door this morning I was viciously attacked by a killer Blue Jay. I was just standing there at the top of my steps, minding my own business, when this evil bird swoops down from a nearby tree with it’s beak wide open screeching at me. Before I even had a chance to duck, the back of my skull was being pecked at. It hurt like hell. The neighbor saw the whole thing and looked pretty shocked. She stepped out of her van and said "did that thing just attack you?". Yup, sure did. I looked up and saw it perching on a tree branch, ready for a second attack and told her to watch out for it, and that was that.
I found a nest later on. If you come here, beware of the birds.
