Angry Birds in Brentwood

The nice early-morning walks that residents of the Brentwood Park neighbourhood enjoy may have become anything but enjoyable during the past few days.  The last 2 mornings, over half of my 10-minute walk to Brentwood Station has involved serious harassment from a neighbourhood crow protecting its nest of chicks.  After crowing its now-familiar battle cry, the angry crow begins to dive-bomb me from the time I leave my front door, following me all the way to the edge of the Brentwood Mall parking lot where it perches itself on top of the Sears building and eyes me as I walk away towards the station.

Hopefully the little baby crows in the nest will soon clear out and relieve me from the neck strain of the past 2 mornings.
