Shit must have been there at least a week. I bet the 90+ degree weather we had last week didn't help much... but surprisingly I didn't even know it was there - no smell, nothing!

ugh, I watched the scrubjay fly in there and then pulled over and pulled him out of my grille still twitching and looking at me.

he was fucking asking for it though. stupid fucker flew straight in there on his own.

get back to me when you've hit a coyote, an owl, a dog or cat. big animals suck, they can do some serious damage at highway/freeway speeds

somehow at work someone ran over a humming bird with a fork lift. They're top speed is 4mph.

At least we think it was a hummingbird... It was hard to tell

if it was a humming bird it was probably already dead from getting stuck inside the warehouse overnight. they need such a constant supply of energy that getting stuck somewhere without food for a few hours is a death sentence.

I found a dead one in my garage a couple years back. poor little fella was still perched on the window sill looking outside through the glass. I thought he was just sleeping at first.

I thought the same as well. We gets lots of birds nesting in our warehouse since it's so open on the dock. Once in a while we get large birds flying around trying to get out. that is interesting.

If you've got the reflexes of a Jedi you can really mess up a large animal by directing the impact. I once pitched a doe into a semi by swerving towards where it was running from. I clipped it in the ass with my fender, causing it to pitch forward and run on it's front legs into the big truck's path. Was a mess and a half - and it corrected my headlight's aim!
