Wow, what kind of birds are those?
There are birds (Fulmars) on sea cliffs here (especially in Scotland) that defend their nests by projectile vomiting horrible green stinky bile at you, but I've never heard of actual avian bombing runs.

The biggest parallel between aikido and climbing for me?
Mushin mugamae.

Back home in Colorado (sigh..oh, how I miss it) they'll occasionally close certain climbing areas for the sake of nesting peregrine falcons or other birds of prey. Wouldn't want one of those taking exception to your presence, would you?
