        I have never yet been swooped by nesting Blackbirds as yet (but then we 
have very few of them in N.Norway, where I have lived the last 30 years). But 
the closely related Fieldfare Turdus pilaris, well known for its aggressivity 
around the nest, does also swoop at people now and then, peppering them with 
faeces just like a gull.
