  • I was once attacked by geese, those birds are mean I tell you. If you want to go by them without getting hurt, I recommend three layers of sweatpants and sweatshirts.

  • I was chased down by a chicken, attacked by seagulls and had a sickly pelican fall on my head when I was in Costa Rica.

  • Chased and bitten (like 40 times) by my grandmother's parrot... She has always been a pain. By pain I mean b****.

  • YES! Once. A mocking bird. They hated my dog, and bothered her at every opportunity. They are just jerks.

  • Robins are vicious, by!

  • While I was out for a run, several times. Probably ran past it's nest or something, it chased me for blocks lol

  • An angry goose chased me down the length of a football field when I was 4.

  • a parakeet bit my finger trying to steal my hot dog...

  • While smoking crack

  • I think that birds only attack in self-defense. These liberals who try to take away birds' god-given right to beaks and talons are disgusting and unconstitutional. Anyone who uses evidence of a random bird attack is totally missing the point that those are chance occurrences and that those birds do not represent the norm. Most birds are god-fearing individuals that would protect before they attack.

I used to take care of owls, truly hateful animals.

Mathgeekjoe: You should have kicked the geese away.
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-08T16:59:38.7930052-05:00
Have you kicked a geese before when you are surrounded by them? I will let you know that it doesn't end well.
TheMarquis says2015-04-08T17:09:13.6470648-05:00
Geese aren't that bad. Swans are meaner. I used to work at a bird shelter in the Summers and birds are kind of evil.
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-08T17:18:52.0961941-05:00
Swans are worse than geese, fudge I am now scared of swans. Does the several layers of sweatpants and hoodies still work?
TheMarquis says2015-04-08T17:20:56.5989605-05:00
The way to not irritate a swan is to stay away from patches of dirty near water. They don't actually abandon their eggs. They leave them in shallow holes in the ground and watch them from the water. If you get near that they will flip out, and they will be almost as big as you.
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-08T17:22:32.7844398-05:00
Which is worse a swan or a turkey?
TheMarquis says2015-04-08T17:23:35.4266450-05:00
Swan for sure. Turkeys are mean but you can do that thing where you half kick them to move them and they will usually leave you be after that. They aren't as dumb as chickens or as tough as swans.
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-08T17:27:30.0389942-05:00
Any bird tougher than swans?
TheMarquis says2015-04-08T17:31:15.3922984-05:00
Birds of prey for sure. And they are smarter. A Great Horned Owl once threw some rat remains at me. They are not just in self defense, they are kind of mean. Barn Owl females will attack you if you go near their male mate. Eagles are just sort of bipolar. Falcons and Vultures are weirdly nice though.

I guess you weren't joking when you said owls are truly hateful animals. How bad is a bald eagle?
TheMarquis says2015-04-08T17:37:33.8013798-05:00
I have never been around a normal bald eagle. The one I was around was a very odd animal. His name was Solo and he was a bald eagle who fell out of the nest and onto his head. He had also for some reason hatched in the middle of the winter. Little guy would act really funny and have seizures.
TBR says2015-04-08T17:54:18.6249137-05:00
Forgot geese. Yup. They are jerks too.
TBR says2015-04-08T17:55:21.6163261-05:00
Come to think of it, and reading the responses... Birds are just JERKS!
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-08T17:58:35.5646575-05:00
When I made this poll, I didn't think that so many people been attack by birds before. I also didn't expect to learn about owls and swans.
TheMarquis says2015-04-08T18:04:02.6860271-05:00
Well hey, I am glad you made this poll. It is nice to leave the big button issues about politics and stuff so we can see similarities and remember to like each other!
TBR says2015-04-08T22:10:07.7073604-05:00
TheMarquis - I have more personal conversations (personal conversations) with polar opposites on this site than with my own ilk.

Birds are the scariest animals ever
Diqiucun_Cunmin says2015-04-09T09:36:43.4852715-05:00
The only birds I've seen, not counting in bird-watching parks/reserves and in cages but in daily life, are pigeons, sparrows, the occasional eagle (flying very high up), those funny birds that look like they're wearing triangular hats and have ridiculously long tails, and egrets. None of them were particularly threatening...
