MIDWEST CITY, Oklahoma -

Folks in one metro neighborhood say they look up out of fear every time they leave the house. The reason: some very aggressive birds.

For the past week, some neighbors in Midwest City have been attacked by the birds while driving down LaJean Street.

"Kids can't ride their bikes or anything because I'm afraid of the claws," Linda Dunham said.

The birds can be seen swooping down low and at times, even striking cars.

"I thought it was kid throwing a Frisbee but there wasn't anyone around," said Arnold Eastham, whose truck has been hit twice by the birds.

Several other neighbors claim their vehicles have been hit as well.

Wildlife experts have identified the birds as Mississippi Kites. They say they do get aggressive during their nesting season which occurs in July, but they also say it's extremely rare for the birds to be attacking cars.

Wildlife Officials say the birds will probably stop being aggressive in a couple more weeks.
