Thought I was kidding about the aggressive Magpie post earlier? Well, one afternoon while staring into my iPhone I felt a soft fluffy something brush my hair. Realised I had been “swooped” as MBD called it. A day or so later, the school closed the entrance completely and put up barriers outside MBD’s classroom to keep folks away from the nesting area.
So then it was time for a face-to-face, man-to-bird confrontation! In the courtyard, waiting to pick up MBD, this vicious fowl approached me with murder on its mind. Slowly it advanced, but I held my ground. The music to “The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly” rang in my ears. Ahhh-EE-Ahh-EE-Ahh! Mwah MWAH Mwah….
But it didn’t end quite like I thought it would!
