When beating the odds isn’t a good thing

Lately a lot of birds are playing chicken by flying across the road in front of my truck. Today, a Robin looked like it was just going to clear my windshield when…thunk-whacka-whacka…my antenna started swinging back and forth…violently.

Pretty good odds to fly into that skinny little antenna. Pretty bad luck to hit it at 40 mph.

I hope it wasn’t mama flying back to the nest to feed her young. That would be very sad.

    i get it. here we have to run the gauntlet of squirrels every time we leave the house practically – and many, if not most, run towards the car not away! going on seven years and i’ve only hit one once. it is sad. even with naughty squirrels.
