WATCH OUT!! Red-Winged Blackbirds attacking people along the lakefront

Not the birds!!

Yes, the birds!  They’re attacking pedestrians along the lakefront!  Should you be visiting the paths along the shores of Lake Michigan, you may come across a sign that say, “Caution!! Attacking Bird.”

These signs are referring to red-winged black birds: one of the most common bird in Chicago and the U.S.  But what they’re doing now, may not seem so common.

Apparently, they are dive-bombing at people in order to protect their nests!  Around June and July they get the most aggressive, so be careful!!
