"That's (Not) The Chicago Way!"

Residents in one of the toughest cities in the US are being terrorised by....small birds:
Chicago residents have been warned to beware of blackbirds after a spate of dive-bombing attacks on cyclists and pedestrians. The fiercely territorial behaviour of the male red-winged blackbird has been blamed for a series of incidents.

People have complained of being chased for up to 100 yards, pecked in the head and had their hair clawed.
Chicago's most famous fictional resident could not be reached for comment...
