A viral video posted on TikTok shows pedestrians in Old Montreal falling victim to bird attacks.
User Aya Chraïbi filmed the unpublished scene from her home.
The bird responsible for these gratuitous attacks is the red-winged blackbird, a bird found across North America, especially in wetlands, according to Birds Canada.
The group of experts says that these birds chase pedestrians to protect their nest, so it is recommended to give them space.
In the comments under the TikTok post, several people claim to have had a similar experience.
“It happened to me a few years ago when I was cycling,” mentions a user.
