Caught On Tape: Dive Bomber Birds



SAN FRANCISCO (CBS/NNS) Bombs away! A very determined and aggressive blackbird has some people wondering if it's safe to walk in San Francisco's financial district.

The tiny bird has spent the last several weeks dive bombing people as they walk near the intersection of California and Front street.

According to some experts, the determined dive bomber is defending his nearby nest using a tactic called "mobbing." Nobody's been hurt, but quite a few people have been startled.

The bird has also developed a following. Several people now gather to watch the daily dive bombings.
