Caution: Aggressive Blackbird on the MDT

If you plan on taking a walk on DeKorte Park's Marsh Discovery Trail any time soon, please look out for an aggressive male Red-winged Blackbird.

It will perch near you and berate you, and if you don't move on quickly enough, it will whiz over your head from the back and scare the wits out of you (if you have any left).

The bird is simply protecting its turf and youngsters in a nearby nest — just like last year.

    I guess we should name him now, assuming it’s the same bird. (Seems possible, or even likely…)
    I suggest we call him The Defender.

    Just wave your hat in the air as you walk through his territory. He will still be unhappy, but he won’t bite your hair.
