As regular CFZ-watchers will know, for some time Corinna has been doing a column for Animals & Men and a regular segment on On The Track... particularly about out-of-place birds and rare vagrants. There seem to be more and more bird stories from all over the world hitting the news these days so, to make room for them all - and to give them all equal and worthy coverage - she has set up this new blog to cover all things feathery and Fortean.

Angry bird dive-bombing customers at Seattle parking lot

SEATTLE -- "Angry Birds" isn't just the name of a video game for patrons of a parking garage in downtown Seattle.

A territorial, diving-bombing seagull has people running for cover at one local lot.

You won't see many people or parked cars these days on the rooftop lot of Seattle's Goat Hill Parking Garage. A mamma seagull has staked out the lot for herself and her family, and nobody else is welcome there.

Many patrons know the bird is just doing what all good moms do and they're happy to give up their spot.

"It's internal, it's something you have no control over," said Kathy Tremper, who parks in the lot.
