I've noticed that some of the wildlife have been unusually... fearless. I hadn't seen red-winged black birds here in ages, and just last weekend there was one singing away on the fence while I was walking my usual path. I spotted him about 30 feet in front of me. I was glad to see one, but kept walking closer to him, expecting him to fly away. I eventually stopped directly in front of him, he was about five feet away, and he just kept singing like I wasn't there. I female came and landed next to him, both ignored me for a few moments and then they flew away, looping and diving and showing off. Maybe they were just twitterpated, but it was a little weird. The rabbits are letting us get really close, but there are baby bunnies everywhere this year. Even the pocket gophers are bold though. One went through the grass and nearly ran over my husbands foot while he was fixing fence.

On the other hand, my horses have been squirrely, and spooky and weird. My horse seems depressed, sullen and anxious, which is not like him at all. Usually, if he sees me with a halter, or I call his name he comes right up because he wants to go do something, but lately he just stands there, and maybe turns his head toward me, and then looks away. They are all spooking at things they are well accustomed to, or sometimes nothing at all. I was speculating that some drunk cowboys might be breaking into my pasture and messing with them, but now I wonder.

Yesterday a small black bird (maybe a grackle) was squaking at work, standing outside the garage door. I walked out to it, pet it's head, and it followed me inside. Non stop squawking. I tried getting him to hop on my finger but he wouldnt but I could pet him no problem. He was following me everywhere.... I had to shut the shop up to keep him out.

100% fabrication bro, Come on now? I have lived around those birds my entire life and never, I mean never, has any black bird even stayed within 30 feet of any human that I have seen. Unless of course this black bird was somehow tamed by someone who was feeding it regularly? Which would defeat the purpose of this thread.

Not at all trying to be a jerk either. Just making a reckless assumption. However yuh know, Sometimes I feel like people just want to follow the herd. Know what I mean? ~$heopleNation

Vey strange actions indeed.

I really have no idea where to start searching for conclusive evidence that would cover all aspects of the of these descriptions.

I do find it quite incredible, the behaviour many animals are exhibiting recently. I had never noticed anything out of the ordinary, until ... today actually.

My mom called early this morning, asking me if I had an extra key for my dad's truck, which he locked himself out of, causing him to be late.

Anyway, I throw some clothes on and sit in the living room, looking out the front door, waiting to see her pull up. After 10-15mins, she arrived in front of my house, and, since she was in a big hurry, I opened the door to run the key to her.

I had taken no more than 2 jogging steps off the front porch when I was buzzed by a bird. Not sure the exact type of bird, but it had grey wings with white underbellied and either blue or red chests (sorry for confusion)

I didn't think much of it, since I was jogging. I assumed maybe I ran into a path it was already headed and it came so close as it was correcting it's course.

I gave her the key, said, 'Bye', and headed back up the sidewalk.

I noticed the bird sitting on the ledge of my roof, as if it were staring at me, watching my moves to see if I am a possible threat.That's the impression I got from it.

Since it was an off day for me, I kicked back and watched a bit of TV and screwed around on the net. Before I knew it, the time had reached 12.00p.

I headed back out to see if the mail'person' had delivered anything for me. Once again the same bird, or bird species, swooped down on me at a steep angle - literally missing my forehead by inches. I could hear the wind on it's wings.

Spooked me a bit... I could easily over power the bird, but they scare me with those stealth bombing tactics. I could just imagine the bird lodging a talon into an eye socket.

To top it off... this evening there was a line of intense lightning storms pushing into the area and I had left my windows down. You guessed it, the same bird deployed yet another stealthy dive bomb at me. This time it had finely honed it's skill enough that it is was capable of hitting my left shoulder with, what I assume was it's wing.

I have lived here for 14 years and have never ever ever had anything remotely similar happen, unless you count 'Carpenter' bees dive bombing me.

I have also found a very peculiar activity from wasps. Now these guys show no fear at all when attacking. They come from out of nowhere and fly full speed into your body, usually straight into my forehead or the general head area - though I have had them deliver their payload by assualting other parts of my body.

Super wierd in my experience, but it could be something they have always done and I am just now noticing it. I have never heard of this activity before, so maybe if it does happen, it's rare?

Maybe some people are right and Mother Earth has had enough of our destructive, pollution producing habits. Maybe she has ordered 'hits' on us, as a way to kill us off, preserving what environmental integrity remains.

If it doesn't work, maybe she will go to more drastic measures! I hope not...

Anyway, aside from my trip into fantasy land above, I have no idea what the motivation for such confrontations could be.

Sounds like the bird used Wing Attack...

Was it super effective?

Along these lines, we have a resident Mocking bird that won't shut up. The wife and I joke about it cause my cat and the bird are both screaming for no real reason we can see. It is squawking away non-stop all day and night above our house on our chimney which echo's into our house.

I have been so busy with work lately, that I haven't notice very much except for a mocking bird in our area, that has been at it for over a week now. Very irritating. I didn't think anything of it until I saw this thread.

Very very loud and non-stop


makes one wonder why they were called mocking-birds to begin with

But yeah, i'm a night-person since at night you can play the most profitable poker, and i've noticed that hearing birds at 3 a.m is normal all of a sudden O_o

I completely forgot to mention the STRANGEST part of it.

After seeing that bird, I walked inside and went into my room with my now-ex-gf.
I got back up to go into the kitchen to get something, and the kitchen door that leads to outside was closed.
I had turned all the lights off in the backyard and patio, so it was pitch-black.
A strange noise turned my attention to the door, and sure enough, the bird was a few inches off the ground kind of "flying" or "gliding" its way into the glass window of the door.
It would stop and stand there normal, looking at me, but hopping at the door like it wanted in.
My ex saw it, because I went to get her, so I know I'm not just paranoid of birds.

So I walked outside this morning, and I saw a crow on top of a roof. I remember reading this thread about crazy birds, so I kept watching it, expecting it to either divebomb me or stare at me intently. Instead, this bird completely ignored me! I swear the birds are trolling us hardcore.

I'm in Indiana and a family of Canadian geese that are camping out at a nearby pond, complete with a handful of chicks, decided to walk out into the road right in front of my car.

These same geese were a whole lot more cautious a couple weeks ago, hissing at me just for looking at them.

Eh, maybe they were just in a hurry.

I was driving down the road and had the passenger side window down about 4 in. and I heard something hit my car on that side. Well, I looked over and there was the prettiest red cardinal laying on my passenger seat dead. He wasn't bleeding or messed up. I didn't see him fly at the car but he did and laid there dead and pretty! Also, my bulldog is acting weird. She loves to go outside but lately she stops at the door and smells and looks up and will not go out . The bees have disappeared from here also.

Well I live in the tropics so this animal watch post is going to be a little long-

My old dog (who thinks she's 2) is acting her 11years, no energy not even for a swim- her favorite-
My young dog is barking at nothing and nobody

The white herons and blue herons are gone! No pelicans to be seen either and the Ibis birds are in new feeding areas (they usually stay on wetlands to feed but lately they've been in my old garden

Fishings been lousy in most area's north, many Key Largo and Isamorada (northern islands of FL keys) have had to fish damn near Bahamas for Mahi while in Keywest only a few miles, and the snapper usually are preparing to spawn nexted month and they usually EAT EVERYTHING and nada off my hook. So who knows maybe they know somthing?

I don't live in the tropics; I'm in the midwest. But fishing has been a crap shoot here as well. Spring came so early some of the fish spawning times have been altered and messed up. We haven't caught anything worth keeping. I'm starting to think maybe the birds, fish, and maybe all of the animals are jacked up because of the weird seasons this year. Our local meteorologist has said we're about 2 months ahead as far as weather goes.

I know very freaky, and yesterday I read that in Peru, a bunch of dolphins and birds just "DIED" with no explanation. I'm getting nervous.

I live in Singapore and I sincerely feel something is tensed up the environment.

My 2nd adult (18 years old) red-eared terrapin died 3 days ago. Its female partner, about the same age, died few weeks before that.

Coincidence in 2012? I don't think so.

I went with this earthquake/lost pet theory and did an experiment for the month of May in the New Madrid Fault area. Here is a link to the thread I started about my findings. link

On the way to work this morning there were several dogs wandering about the highway which is unusual. I have a 25 mile commute to work and have been doing this for 6 years. I've never noticed, not even during hurricanes or tropical storms, the amount of dogs running across the road. Some in packs, some alone. Also, no birds this morning which is unusual. I at least expected to see the vultures all over the dead hog on the side of the road, which they were there yesterday feeding off it. Not one in sight. Now, we did have some rainstorms during the past two nights, but, again.. I've never seen the dogs like that before on way to work. My dog has been shaking and hiding for 2 days in the house. My goats and cattle seem fine. I looked at the RSOE alert map this morning and saw they are had minor tremors in SC, TN and ARK/MO this morning so far.. plus the amount of moderate to large EQ's in S. America traveling up to US is impressive.

here's a link to the site if you don't already have it:

am keeping an eye on this and my animals this weekend. Anyone else's animals acting stranger than usual? Birds around?

I am in E. TX.

About half an hour ago, I was on the sundeck, and a sweet finch like bird came and visited with me, and then no word of a lie, TWO of the same sweet birds, just came RIGHT IN MY HOUSE together! They were SOOO sweet!

I have NO idea what they are trying to tell me.

There doesn't seem to be any weird actions in the animals around here yet. The deer are still getting into the garden and the crows are still after the Monday garbage. Come to think of it the crows have been screwing up this year and coming on the wrong day or after the truck picked it up. It sounds like they are mad at each other the way they are bitching.
