Bird roadkill Mon, Aug 02, 2010
One of life's great mysteries is how birds get hit by cars.  Ground animals like squirrels and ground hogs, I understand.  But birds have something most animals (and cars) lack:  Vertical position modification, i.e. the ability to fly.  Whenever I see a dead bird on the road, I just want to walk up to it ask it, "Honestly, what happened?  Did you forget that you knew how to fly?  Clearly you use that ability to evade every other dangerous situation in life.  What's so different about a car?"  But that would mean talking to a dead bird, which is weird. #nature
