OFF TOPIC - The Weirdest Thing
I was waiting for the train at the Bridgewater (NJ) Train Station when I heard a commotion above me. I looked up and there were three birds dive-bombing straight at me! Yikes! They swooped back up about twenty feet above me after terrifying me for a moment. I started to watch them. The larger bird is a young (or small) hawk and the other two are crows. The crows are chasing the hawk and literally flying into him in what seems like an effort to knock him out of the air. I've never seen anything like it although hawks and crows are all over the skies here. I didn't get any good shots of the in-air collisions, but take my word ... they were happening. How it all turned out, I don't know. My train came into the station and I had to leave them.
