Subject: [ALBIRDS] Bird Behaviour Barred Owl Human Strike Flycatcher eating BBQ
Hello,



Peculiarly yesterday two friends asked me about unusual bird behavior.



The first friend told me that while walking through the Birmingham
Botanical Garden close to dusk he was hit on the back of his head by a
Barred Owl that then landed in a nearby tree. Fortunately he is not injured
, but is curious about this bird behavior. Anyone have any ideas or
insights?



The second involved a flycatcher interacting with a different friend. In
the afternoon a little bird kept coming out the bushes and hovering around
him. He identified it as a juvenile Phoebe. Anyway, thinking it was
hungry, he scattered some seed on the driveway in front of it, it pecked
them and spit them out. Ah, a flycatcher, he thought, and went and got some
shreds of BBQ -- and it ate out of his hand. Ever heard of this? Here
is the video he made.
