Not the welcome you expect when going to the local store.

I had one run into me while I was driving. On the freeway. Over 70 mph. It was really hard to clean up all the feathers and other parts.

Been there, done that. Exiting tunnel on Italian Autostrada. Found head between front grill and radiator about a week later.

Three times so far in all my driving. One time on the windshield there were beautiful impressions of the wing feathers. Most recent there was a puff of feathers and I saw him flying away so I didn't expire that one.

Pigeons? Hah! Try a Guineafowl at around 50 mph. I got lucky and it hit the lower part of my bumper cover. It left a depression you could put your fist in.

I don't know what so called expert they got to do this, but 1 out of 12 ain't bad. LOL

The US Embassy has been ruthlessly mocked after compiling a baffling list of Aussie slang words to help Americans “speak like a local”.

Someone was certainly pulling their leg, yanking their chain, fooling them about,.....

Cheers.

One way to give yourself up to the Police but I wouldn't recommend it.

I remember one man was arrested for DUI when he pulled up to a messaging board at a police station thinking it was a fast food drive through.
