When Avians Attack

Warren Bell, one of the newer regulars over at NRO's The Corner, has been warnin' about the possibility of a bird war. 'Course he misguidedly called for the creation of a cat army to combat the threat, but he lives in LA so I suppose some ignorance about the true (well documented) menace of fe-lying-dom is to be expected.

Now we occasionally have birds flyin' into the house, but AHM has some sort of human-avian treaty that lets her usher them back out again without creatin' a cross-species incident. Sad to say, however, Warren seems to have uncovered a deeper plot that the rest of us have ignored.

Even more serious, apparently our national symbol has been buyin' into the Demo-cat's hate-America-first rhetoric and taken to attackin' the homes of innocent citizens.

"A bald eagle crashed through a window of a home and landed in the living room, scattering broken glass, feathers and a salmon carcass across the floor. Homeowner Jean Stack heard the crash and initially wondered if someone had thrown a dead fish through the window."

"I stopped in my tracks and thought, 'Oh my gosh," she said. But then she heard her neighbor, Kurt Haskin, yelling. He saw the whole thing from his deck… [An] eagle swooped out of the nearby tree, up past Haskin's head, around the eagle on the roof and back behind the tree, said Haskin. "I didn't notice it was packing a fish when it swooped over me," he said."

A piscus-packin' eagle is nothin' to mess with.

"The eagle re-emerged and bore down on Stack's bay window, which is about 15 feet off the ground. "It just grenaded that window," Haskin said. "The window didn't even slow it down."

I expect al-Birdzeera will be showin' this footage--er--wingage--on their headline news…right after Sen. Durbin's speech.

"But the jolt apparently shook the fish and some feathers free. A moment later, the eagle popped out the hole where the window had been. "It was only about four or five seconds, then it must have gathered its wits and flew back out of there," Haskin said.

Where's Homeland Security when you need 'em? Here we have bald eagles (and now we know why that particular eagle was bald) doin' bombin' runs on American homes, and they don't lift a finger to help.
