My name is James Hales and I took your Bio 100 class last Fall and loved it. I have a question for you. First of all, I served my mission in Melbourne Australia and become well acquainted with the Australian Magpie because they like to swoop and hit people on the head. Well at the location 40°16'11.64"N 111°39'25.70"W here in Provo I have been attacked by swooping birds more than once and they seem to be getting more aggressive. If you copy and paste the coordinates on the search bar at http://maps.google.com you can see the exact location where this occurs, it's on University Parkway in Provo.
Anyways, I go running about three times a week and seriously get scared every time I run this little stretch. There are about six mid - small sized black birds that swoop me. Do you know what kind of birds they are? I did a google search for swooping birds in Utah and wasn't able to find anything. I know you're busy and so if you completely disregard this email than I understand. Thanks for reading!
