Sorry, I missed your reply to "Introduce Yourself"! I'm actually a biologist even though of the molecular kind but I have always loved animals and that of course, includes birds! In the park across from my building we noticed a fierce little bird started swooping down and actually attacking my dog Lola (pit bull mix; for some reason, the bird did not bother my other dog, another pit bull, but he is black and white while the attacked dog is tan, I smell evolution there!); I swear, this bird is fearless, it only stops in mid air if I turn around and open my arms, otherwise he swoops down and get my dog in the rump! It's funny to watch. Lola growls and tries to catch it. I had to look up the bird because I did not know what kind it was; I bought a book for this of course; it is a Northern mockingbird. The orioles in the park sometimes attack me when I'm running past their nesting area. I love it.
