I was chased!!

by Melissa
(Westland, MI, US)

This bird is small, about 6 inches or less, it is narrow, and it looks like an arrowhead when in flight. I didn't get a look at it while resting only while in flight. This bird must be territorial, because it chased me. I have been taking this route to a local store for 3 years and this has never happened before. the birds (2) were diving at me, right before they took these plunges toward me they let out a noise, they would swoop down and make these terrifying cries. From where I was standing they simply like narrow, brown, and small. Oh I should add that I live in the metro Detroit area. Thank you! and sorry I have no picture...i was too busy running for my LIFE!! haha.

It sounds like a swallow and yes, if there nest is near by they attack within inches of your head in an attempt to drive you away from the nest.
