Mockingbirds Attack Students They Recognize at University of Florida

Have You Ever Been Attacked By a Bird?

Look out below! This mockingbird is on the attack at the University of Florida and, according to a recent study, she remembers the person in the pic as someone who came too close to her nest a few days before. The study, which had test subjects touching and getting up-close-and-personal to the mockingbird nest, proved that the birds can recall faces since they only attacked the people who actually touched the nest and ignored other passersby! Who knew birds had such good memories!?

I usually have a daily run-in with a pigeon (or two) that come a little too close to my noggin (and one blackbird continues to make news), but I've never been directly attacked by a bird like the poor girl in this pic. Well, unless you count the time I was pooped on by a seagull, but I doubt that was intentional.
