[pct-l] The Birds!

Hey, is this the same bird that attacked Yogi and others?

Day 33 ? July 6 ? talked with Horton

Fun trail story from July 6, Horton was attacked by not one but two birds 
(type unknown) yesterday in the last few miles into Sierra City before Hwy 49.? 
He heard a "Whoosh" behind him, then again over his head.? He looked up to see 
a bird squawking and dive-bombing straight towards him.? After the first 
passing he picked up a stick and started "running like mad, swinging the stick in 
the air.?? They made another pass and then "Wham!" on the third pass one of 
them hit him in the side of the head!? It stunned him a bit and when he looked 
around he saw something on the ground.? For a split second thought he had taken 
out his attacker, but in reality the bird had knocked off his hat.? He picked 
it up and high-tailed it out of there.

Horton's up to Lassen already, incredible!
