Swoops Flies Across Street To Attack Blond Man

Swoops reportedly flew across Front Street this morning to attack a man with blond hair that was staring at Swoops from the Swoops viewing area. It is uncertain why Swoops made the trip across the street and left his nesting tree unprotected. The blond man was both startled and confused. Why this blond man? Why now?

  1. I can't get enough of Swoops.

    I do wish I could hop on a plan now and visit.

  2. Swoops wanted some of that blond hair for his nest, he's got an eye for the finer things in life now that he's a celebrity.

  4. Yeah, we've got a bird's eye view from our office, pun intended, and we can't stop watching him. What is it about this fine, feathered phenomenon that has us so captivated?!? I hope fame doesn't affect his young.... like Lisa Presley.

  5. Yep - also have a "bird's eye view" from my office window. It's hard not to watch - the reactions of the people who have been "swooped" are hysterical. Even better was watching their reactions to the other predators in the area: the news media. Yesterday, a hapless pedestrian was swooped by the bird, then accosted by the media. He appeared more frightened of the media!!

  7. How are you Schwab workers getting anything done?
    How funny that she (is it the mom?) chose a tree across from the corner with the mother + child statue, in the heart of the viewing area.

    Citywide or the bank there, her headquarters,needs to capitalize on this, put up onsite ads: "Build your nest egg with us", or "Protecting your nest egg". Ok, bad,yes.

    Her fearlessness inspires too, or she's a crowdpleaser, landing right in front of the viewing area to nibble;
    her occasional brief flits one block down Front street or to the large flower bed on California are puzzling...for bugs?

  8. The man shouldn't have been staring at Swoops like that. He got what was coming to him.
