I don't know, but that didn't look like 180 mph going by the white lines.... but the way the bird impacted the windshield....

It made seagull stew on that windshield. They had to be hauling pretty good at least. 180 might be high, but still, that would suck bad. At least it didn't break through.

Right hand drive... most likely 180 kph. And it didn't even look anywhere near 180 mph.

I've had a bird hit my driver side front fender while I was doing about 140 kph (KPH PEOPLE...not mph) and it dinged off the fender with not nary a mark.

I reaaaaly have a hard time believing that video, perhaps if the bird itself was doing the same speed as the car head on, then maybe. That kinda combined kinetic energy....then maybe. I claim BS despite the footage.
