Dec 4th 2007 1:57PM Here's the trick. All you do is as soon as you get aggro from he birds, press and hold the space bar or jump button. the bird may hit you once, but they need 3 hits to knock you off your mount. the bird will chase you, without attacking you, until you get outside of its range. the bird will then go back to its pat path. sometime u have to fly pretty high, but its better than dropping to your death. rinse and repeat. works every time.
