    I just got schooled by a bird

    WTF???
    I bet that is exactly what you are thinking right now, because I'm still pondering it.
    I was biking back from the deli and making good time because my lunch break was about over, I had to have been going 18-21mph, no cycloputer to verify though, and all of a sudden this little Killdeer came jetting out of the field next to me and started racing me. I was pumping as hard as I could and this little son of a ***** was just laughing at me as he ran along side me. And he wasn't just keeping up either, he was drifting from in front of me to next to me to in front of me, it was aweful!!!! It looked so damned funny that I started laughing so hard I lost control and bailed into the soft grass of the field next to the road.
    Then he stopped, looked at me, and just stood there as to say "come on fat boy, get up and let's finish this". I'm so depressed, I'd cry if I weren't laughing so hard.

    back when I had a mass of tangly dreadlocks, I was biking up a sidewalk on a hill while drunk. as I passed a hedge, a little bird flew out, above me, then DIVEBOMBED and pecked at my head. somehow though, its feet got stuck in my head or something, because it just STAYED THERE, for an eternal-seeming 30 seconds--flapping, pecking, squaking, and finally getting loose. stupid to be territorial when one nests so near drunken college kids.

    Too bad it wasn't a mockingbird. That would make it more ironic, yes?

    Heh, I had a close run-in with a couple geese this morning. I was almost to work on my morning commute when a group of low flying geese flew right in front of me. I was doing about 18 mph at the time and had to duck hard to miss the last one in line. I felt the wind off its wings it was so close. Scared me good but I had to laugh afterwards.

    A bird once flew off a lamp post as I passed, kinda shrieked at me and pecked me on my back a couple of times. I think it didn't like me.

    A bird raced me once, and I'll swear it winked at me as it passed.
