Angry red-winged blackbird attacks passersby on Parliament Hill
And now it has a Twitter account
For yet another spring, a red-winged blackbird has been divebombing people as they walk by its nest on Parliament Hill.
Maybe the Parliament Hill bird is hoping for this kind of CBC TV coverage.
More likely, it's simply protecting its family.
But it didn't take long for a Twitter account to materialize, of course.

Its yoga on the Hill today. Excellent.—@ParlBird
I was just attacked by a bird in front of an elementary school class and a group of Parliament staff, how's your morning going?—@daniellediscala
She's baa-aack. <a href="https://twitter.com/cmaconthehill">@cmaconthehill</a>: I just got attacked by the infamous Parliament Hill bird. I didn't know the attack season had begun.—@kady
After that bloody bird in front of Parliament nailed me three times in a row on the head, I'm a little paranoid.—@KimberleeTaylor
