Not as dramatic but when I'm on the tractor cutting the field I'm always followed by several birds that fly in a weird crisscross pattern around the tractor snagging bugs. Every now and then hawks will circle in the area and scare the fuck outta me when they swoop down for field mice that I flush out.
Not at this house but my previous house had a natural wildlife area next to it and when I cut grass I had a handful of barn swallows I think they are called that would synchronize dive bomb me. Freaked me out at first but noticed they never came within 10 feet or so. Was entertaining.

I love all animals......that's a big reason why we got our small farm. I love seeing the hawks swooping around along with the occasional owl (owls are badass). I have a bathouse to hang on the barn in the Spring. Bats are more neat than cool but they'll keep the insect population in check and I love watching the way they so abruptly change direction in mid flight.
Yup , me too...We had a hawk hanging around my job a couple of years ago...fucker would pick off pidgeons in mid air....amazing sight....I've only seen a couple of owls in action, but you're right, they are bad ass
