I didn't want to admit this but I have a small conflict within my bird hatred.
I don't know why but for some reason they don't make me shudder in terror. Is it because they're wise? They can turn their ears in different directions? They really only swoop at night and I'm not usually out at night as a tempting target? They're regal?
I'm not sure but for some reason I keep being tempted by things like this.
Which is why I think they might be the exception.
