4 birds in 4 days + 2 the next week.
So, I got a nail in the rear tire of the LT and while I waited for a new tire, I drove the wifes Bonneville to work. It was either Monday or Tuesday. I hit a bird on the top of the wind shield. Don't know if it died. Probably only the 3rd or 4th bird I have gotten, but I didn't think much of it.
Next day, I took the Pickup to work, with the new tire for the LT in the back (Bike was parked sans rear wheel at my bosses house). Nailed a bird on the front edge of the hood. Killed it.
Next day, LT back in action. Within 100 yards of where I got the one with the Ford, I nailed on square in the head light.
Next day, again on the LT. Again, on the same road and this though popped into my mind. "Hmmm, I have hit a bird with every vehicle I own this week, how odd!" and not ten seconds later, nailed another one square in the head light.
Next week, on the way to work, again same stretch of road, bang, get one again, this time on the lower spoiler and subsequently my left toe.
That night, on the way home (different stretch or road), bam, square in the headlight again.
This one stretch of road is North-South and has Soy Beans planted on the east side and corn on the left side. For some reason, the birds seem to bed down in the east ditch and when they see/hear a vehicle, feel the need to directly across the road into the corn. Weird.
