Over in Golden Gate Park, there is a rogue blackbird which, maybe under the pretenses of protecting a nest or maybe because it's just insanely aggressive, has made a habit of pouncing and pecking peoples' scalps. It's straight out of Hitchcock's The Birds, and it is totally frightening/hilarious.

Richmond resident Mila Zinkova spent several days documenting the bird's antics in June, and the Richmond SF blog just posted a video — it's unclear if the bird remains a public threat, but it would seem it probably does, since no other blackbirds behave this way, as Zinkova notes.

Anyway, this was all happening along a well-trod path near Stow Lake, and perhaps still is.

Have any of you, dear readers, had run-ins with this bird whilst jogging? Please let us know.
