‘Tis the season for crow attacks; help us map them

It’s June and you know what that means: Angry crow parents are fiercely protecting their nests. You might just be minding your own business walking down a shady street when out of nowhere a flash of black feathers takes a swipe at the top of your head. Ouch!

Here’s a recent attack story from Twitter:

As a public service, we’re mapping the locations of real angry birds, places where you might want to take a detour around if you’re out for a walk. The map below is a start based on tweets this week. If you’ve got a harrowing attack story to share, please do so in the comments and we’ll add that to the map too. Be sure to include an address or intersection for mapping purposes.

Just remember that researchers say crows are super smart. Don’t get on their bad side!
