    Default The most dangerous birds

    Six of the world's most dangerous birds, per Britannica:

    Cassowary
    Ostrich
    Emu
    Lammergeier (bearded vulture)
    Great horned owl
    Barred Owl

    "On one occasion, [Johnny] Cash brandished a 6-foot stick and swung it at the [ostrich], who dodged the swipe and slashed at Cash with its foot. Cash noted that the blow struck him in the stomach, and if it weren’t for a strong belt buckle, he said that the ostrich’s toe claw would have cut his abdomen open and killed him."

    I've seen great horned owls get shredded by eagles one on one. Scratch that off the list. Ostrich will **** with anything so I agree there.

    There's a Bird from French Lick. Savage

    Birds and "dangerous" aren't synonymous. You have to include their archosaur cousins, the crocodiles, before things get scary

    Yeah but eagles dont attack humans, especially because theyre active during daytime when you can see them. Owls attack at night, and in the dark they can mistake your hair for some moving critter, and before you hear or see them they try to snatch your head and gouge your eyes to shit.

    It does happen bro. Be careful out there. Be very, very careful.

    In the vast majority of settings thats true, but lets say youre walking in the woods and going around a tree you happen to spook an unsuspecting cassowary. That thing has a long, sharp talon at the end of each big toe, and one kick can disembowel a man. It has happened before.

    Just be careful bro. Be very, very careful.

    I remember waiting for next at my park this past summer, a bunch of people watching some hawk that was stalkin a squirrel. That shit was amazing to finally see it fly away with it. We don't get them kinda predator birds around here, but I'd imagine they could have lots of rodents plus smaller birds like pigeons and never run out.

    Not dangerous to humans, but this little bird got its wings broken off by an Eleonora's Falcon to be eaten later.

    I was at a dog park and a red tail swooped down and grabbed a gopher. That was cool I thought. Then a Great Heron flew in, grabbed the gopher from the hawk, flipped it up in the air, and then swallowed it whole.

    Where I work a smaller Cooper’s hawk flew up with a live duck and started dismembering it. Another Cooper flew in and tried to steal it. While they were fighting a peregrine falcon flew in and stole it from both of them.

    Birds are dinosaurs. Heck yeah they’re dangerous.

    Don’t forget those Aussie magpies

    Interesting. Too long, can you please condense it into a small paragraph?
