Bird is the Word

I was shocked by the outpouring of response from my last post. All 4 of my readers flooded my inbox with questions. Thank you to all four of you for your interest.

A few answers:
1. The duck was not injured in the aforementioned story.
2. "Ben" didn't "duck" because he was driving. Safety first, people! Safety first!
3. Savvy reader and fellow adoptive mommy, Melissa sent me this story and pointed out there may perhaps be strange things afoot at the Circle K....

Eagle Survives Crash Through Semi-truck Windshield

Perhaps there's a bird "underground" and they're slowly working to take things over - one vehicle at a time.
The best part of the story was the part where it said "The guys in the truck immediately bailed out because it was one ticked off bird. She was pretty feisty. Even the officer who responded didn't want to go in there so we had one of our wildlife biologists do it."

Yeah... that beak and those talons.... MUCH worse to get in your eyeball than "duck gunk".

My dear friend, Tia, (who is going on the next trip with us to Haiti) had a seagull smash her windshield one day while driving to work. I know... "what's a seagull doing in Utah". We all wonder that. It is a landlocked state and all, but we do have the largest saltwater lake in the western hemisphere and the seagulls did play a very big part in the history of the state of Utah. I guess they came for the lake and stayed for the crickets.

So, I suppose it is possible that when you group all these things together with the recent water landing on the Hudson that there could be a plot at work with our fair feathered friends.

Or that whole conspiracy theory thing could be for the birds....

You know, a turkey flew through my Dad's windshield a couple years ago totalling the truck...you may be on to something.

I've been debating on whether it would weird you out if I commented or not. Then I decided that if you didn't want others reading your blog it wouldn't be public. I found your blog through Michelle's blog (WA State). I have laughed, cried, worried when you haven't posted and pray for you and the children. So I guess you can add a reader to your tally. And watch out for those birds.

I believe Dave would go with the conspiracy of them taking over. You should ask him about his bird experience.

Could be revenge...just think:
""Jonathan Livingston Seagull"
"The Birds"
"Night of the Condor"
"Bird on a Wire"
"Birdman of Alcatraz"
"To Kill a Mockingbird"
"I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings"
"March of the Penquins"
"Madagascar" (it had penquins in it!)

One night while we were driving a Canadian Goose flew right into our windshield. We never saw it coming because it was dark. Just the huge crash and glass smashing. It was quite the experience!
