That bird won't be messing with anyones car again. Too bad it isn't the infamous BC bird that keeps beating up a car.

The good bird shots are the head on ones that hit the windshield I've been driving for 13 yrs now and know to look into my rearview mirror and watch them tumble to the road.

My best Bird kill was a turkey I ran over. Dumb *** ran right in front of me. Looked like a damn cartoon behind me. Feathers every where and one crazy flooping soon to be dead turkey. Ended up being a poor hen.

So far I havent hit a bird with my bonnie, but after seeing that pic not worried about it one bit!

I hit a cardnal with my bonne. Didnt really do a whole lot, going down West river drive, and it flew out infront of me. needed a new plastic grill insert peice cause it cracked, but no bit remains. Least your guys were in bonnes and not on bikes. The the bird mightve had the last..chirp?
