JRad, sorry for the first ding to your lovely trailer – but at least you have it out of the way, and according to the Dent Doctors who have assessed your damage in this thread, it seems like a trip to Harbor Freight and you will be as good as new!
Now, about the use of this bird incident to name your trailer….
At first, I was like, Why? A bird whose flight path takes it into a window is an omen of death. But, technically, this bird missed the window, and as Batman points out, you are very lucky…
That got me to thinking about the problems down at JFK and LaGuardia airports, where the Port Authority has had to instill measures to combat “bird strikes” such as the one that Capt Sully and his passengers amazingly survived after crash landing in Hudson River [nice reference, GetawA-S]
And if a bird poops on your head (which is kind of where this bird landed – on the head of your ‘stream), it is a sign of good luck.
So, suggestion #!: Luckystrike
[Lucky Strike, as a Forum moniker has already been claimed.]
But, was it luck or some force field surrounding your trailer? I rather liked the more positive spin, and so, riffing off of your current Forum name, JRad, I thought…
Suggestion #2: R.A.D. Force or RAD Force or RAD Force I
R.A.D. is an acronym for Road and Dirt, so depending on how you plan to use your trailer, that could have appeal.
And RAD is a slang term for something that is “totally excellent” as an Airstream is.
Or in this context, RAD could be code for “Realizing Airstream Dream”
Continuing the JRad Rif…
Suggestion #3: Radbird or RADbird
And riffing on the use of the word bird in a word… “For the Birds”, “Big Bird” and “OrniAir” came to mind, but quickly hit the cutting room floor for likely obvious reasons…
But then, as I kept riffing on, Bird Bath kept popping into mind …but it seemed like such a downer to memorialize the fact that a bird had “taken a bath” on the front of your trailer…and then, this came to mind:
Suggestion #4: Bird Bash
Yes, it gives a nod to the moment you wanted to remember, but also evokes a party!
“Bash - a party or celebration, especially a large one held by an official organization...”
So, regardless of what you decide to name him/her, here’s hoping that every day in your Airstream is party.
