Mockingbirds Attack in Transmitter, Robbers Impersonate ICE, Literary Playlists—The Hook-Up 7/31
Word on the street is that there’s a dangerous crew of mockingbirds hanging out in Transmitter Park, and boy are they ready to start shit. One reader tells us, “I was running through there the other day and one of them swooped down and started pulling at my ponytail. When I tried to keep running, it followed be and started yanking at it again.” Apparently, it is nesting season for the birds and the brutal attacks should stop once the birds’ babies are able to leave the nest. This has been happening for years, and seemingly is just wildlife being rightfully pissed off that we’re invading their turf.
