Random scotto factoid

The vast majority of my friends who have been bitten by wild birds, were attacked by waterfowl.

A Pelican, a goose, ducks and seagulls in particular. 

Why waterfowl? 

A youth spent in Florida and up the east coast maybe? Perhaps folks in the Midwest are more likely to be attacked by owls and kestrals?

I don’t remember having been bitten by a bird at all, not even if they were a pet. (We had a few birds as I was growing up… parakeets and cockateils.)

Loud, but thankfully non-violent sea birds on my inlaws neighbor’s chimney.

My brother was bitten by an ostrich during a visit to the zoo, and my mother was terrorized by the domestic geese on their farm when she was little. A friend was swooped by some sort of large raptor - I can't recall if it was one of the larger hawks or an eagle. Hovering silhouettes freak him out a bit now.

There's my midwestern bird stories.
