    During yesterday's flights, I had two birds try to take me out. Kinda of freaked me out at first, so I gassed it. I had to pay special attention to them the rest of the flights. Crazy.

    I have had birds swarming my P3 too. Swallows, crows, Colorado penguins, and an Osprey have been checking it out.

    If you are flying and get close to their nest or their area they will attack to protect. Ever seen the little sparrows attacking a big Blackbird or even a Hawk. When they come out just be mindful of that area and try to avoid it and that may help prevent a crash or some kind of bird damage. Yours or theirs!
