Angry Bird

A crow dive-bombs Melanie Lochert as she walks across the Morrison Bridge Thursday, in Portland, Ore. For the past two months people crossing the west end of the Morrison Street Bridge have been dodging a crow that's been protecting a nest. From morning to night the bird swoops down from the sky, flying inches from the heads of unsuspecting bicyclists and pedestrians. Frequent travelers have taken to protecting themselves with umbrellas and hoods while keeping their eyes to the sky as they dash to the other side. (AP Photo/Rick Bowmer)
