A group of real-life angry birds has been terrorizing fair-haired visitors to London's Eltham Park South.

Quote

In scenes reminiscent of those in Alfred Hitchcock's 1963 movie "The Birds", the otherwise ideallic park has been home to a spate of attacks from hostile crows that appear to have a grudge against women with blonde hair.

Stone the crows, that must be scary as hell.  Other than running away there's not much you can do unless you have a hat, hood or flame-thrower on your person.

It appears (after a news search) that this might have been ONE person attacked recently.

There were multiple attacks -- four years ago: http://www.newsshopp...gers_in_a_flap/

Perhaps they see blonde hair as nesting material and were just trying to collect some.

I think this is probably the case, it is spring after all. Crows are known to be attracted to bright shiny thngs...why not fixin's for a nice shiny nest?

Interesting idea, I wonder if there is some sort of shortage of what they usually use for nests.

So long as they're not attracted to shiny, scalp-coloured hair then I'd be safe in that park. :mellow:

It mentions in the article a colour association with fear, maybe a previous encounter with a light haired animal, maybe a Labrador.

But seeing as it is a blonde woman being attacked could the angry crows have come across this angry bird in the past and are out for revenge.  ;)


Edit: to many 'maybes' for such a short post.

Strange that a so-called bird expert linked labrador dogs to blonde women.

I looked into this and found it's just women with light hair that are vistims of crows in that park. Also an elderly woman with white hair was attacked. It's easy to explain off the colour but why pick on women?

She could just dye her hair to avoid any further avian molestation I guess lol.

I think it is just a facet of animal behaviour that we clearly don't fully understand. As has been noted it could be the light, vibrant and noticeable colour of the hair that attracts them, who knows.

I am trying to refrain from any blonde dog jokes.

I would guess women are more likely to have long blonde hair than men... Not many gnarly surf dudes in London parks ;)
