Did that happen to you?
Up to now, we had (that we know of) 2 small birds killed themselves, crashing in our trailers:
_ we found a bluebird, dead after colliding with our #1 (1971) parked at home
_ we saw a sparrow-like bird fly smack on the side of our #2 (1974) parked in the street in NJ.
I'm afraid it's #3 turn now. Yesterday was the most interesting and scary experience to date:
#3 (1990) is temporary parked in the field, awaiting construction of his concrete pad.
Nice natural & wild setting: surrounded by small trees.... and plenty of birds.
I was inside a building, about 100' from the trailer. When I heard a loud "plonk", the sound of something hitting aluminium.
Then, Mike yelled: "Come out, I cannot believe it !!!! A big hawk chased a woodpecker into.....
..... the box of the truck"
That was a relief: that bird missed the trailer by about 10'. It made a nice splash and a big cloud of feathers. It turned out to be a bobwhite (bad flyers, and bigger than a pigeon).
I then wondered what would have happened if it had hit the trailer, and worse, a window. And even worse scenario: the hawk could have hit a window.
After losing a window on #1 because of a ball thrown by a kid, we thing about that from time to time.
Did anybody had any encounter with identified flying objects ?
