Be careful walking through Transmitter Park in Greenpoint, a particularly angry Mockingbird has been attacking everyone. From NY Times:
he felt a slight tap on his head.
He reached up, touched blood, and then saw a mockingbird circling above.
Mr. Henry ran.
Two days later, on his next visit to the park, he heard “a wail, like a battle cry,” emanating from what he believed was the same bird, as it plunged toward him once again.
“It’s so ridiculous,” said Mr. Henry, 44, a children’s book author, as he showed a reporter the site of the attack last Thursday. “I’m scared of a bird.”
He’s a children’s book author? I guess we can expect to see The Mean Mockingbird on shelves this fall. Read more accounts of the recent attacks at NY Times.
