The attack bird near Hyde Park Square is a Mockingbird. It’s also been corroborated by Ginger, a friend and neighbor, who also walks her dog on Erie Avenue.
I’m not sure how long these animals live – I’m figuring it must be the same bird since the circumstances are exactly the same. This is the third or fourth year that it has appeared.
This bird perches on a wire at the same location while Lola and I are having our morning walk. As we pass by it – it swoops down from behind and dive bombs either me or the dog. This is not just one pass but it will circle and make multiple passes.
Here are a couple pictures from a previous post.
