Open your mind and draw this picture---
I am walking to the mail box----it must be the total of 50-60 feet from the front of my door---there is a crazed bird diving for my head---making multiple passes with the rush of his wings passing so close to the crown of my head that I am sure I have been indeed crowned with a nest of his feathers. As he screams at me with each pass---I am frantically waving my hands over my head and ducking under the cover of my arms trying to protect myself. The "Bird From Hell" has a nest either in my front flower bed or the flower bed by the mail box---and he / she is NOT happy that I am in MY front yard.
This hasn't happened once---this happens EVERY time I go out in the front yard and even happened once in the back yard. I have done a thorough search of the "Welcome to Ruston" signs on the edges of town and have found NOTHING that indicates "Bird Sanctuary"---I am sure it is written in the town's official codes and regulations---but they did not issue me a copy when I moved into the city limits----
SO---BIRD FROM HELL-----BEWARE----YOU are on the ragged edge of my temper---AND I now KNOW that shotguns prove to be very effective--even if your hand - eye co-ordination is not good. Your little family may are in danger of being raised by a single parent-----unless you STOP harassing the land owner!
