Stupid Bird!

So here I was, driving down the hwy minding my own business, when out of nowhere, WHAM!!!!.............. a partridge hit my driver's side window at whatever full speed it was doing.

It left a nasty snot, dust, and feathered blotch on my window. Yuck! So I went to the gas station and was washing off the crap, when I saw the corner of my vent visor was snapped off.

Another $36 for another pair.

See?





Stupid bird............

Could have been worse, the bird could have come in straight and gone through the grill into the radiator. Or straight into the windshield.

I guess in the fall, or around October, they start to act crazy. They're fly after you, chase you on your fourwheeler, stand in the middle of the road, and in my case, hit the only red car on a bare hwy.

What are the odds!?


But on a glad note, if my window was open, that bird would've hit me in the head, probably knocking me out and causing a crash. Or it would've got into the car and starting to do who knows what until I pulled over.

Again.................stupid bird........
