Damn...that's an amazing bird that can drive and drop a fish on another vehicle's windshield.

This is why dash cams should be required. The russkies are beating us at a very simple thing here.

Best thing my dash cam captured was a UPS truck coming into my lane on a blind curve with probably 100+ mph closure. Scared the crap out of me.

I just expected a fish dropping. Seeing the bird in the vid makes me think it was a deliberate attack. I'll trust the bird had good reason, that he didn't start the animosity.

Give a man a fish, he'll eat for a day.
Give a man a chipmunk carcass, he'll throw it away.

A red-tailed hawk dropped a chipmunk carcass on my hood. While I was parked though, so not as dramatic.

Curiously enough, the only thing that went through the mind of the fish, as it landed on the windshield of the speeding truck, was "Oh no, not again." Many people have speculated that if we knew exactly why the fish had thought that we would know a lot more about the nature of the Universe than we do now.

During my time in oregon we were barbecuing with some friends. A big hawk dropped a sea lamprey in the backyard while we were there. Kinda spooky actually if youve ever seen one.

Then there was the one that got away. I was on a certain bridge over the rogue river looking down on a 1-2 foot deep riffle with quite a few really big salmon holding place in it. Huge redtail hawk snagged about a three footer but couldnt lift off with it, too big a fish to fly with. So they tumbled downstream over each other maybe ten times before the hawk let go.  great show...

Many people think sharks are the biggest assholes in the animal kingdom. Not true. In reality, birds are far and away the biggest assholes.

They get away with it because they're cute and have feathers and all, but don't let the looks fool you. A bird will kill you and your family in a heartbeat if given a chance. Never. Ever. Turn your back on a bird. This one was just getting started.

Not as funny as the time one dropped a chipmunk into my wife's lap while she sat on the porch.
I'm not sure who screeched louder, my wife or the hawk who lost his dinner.

Was it a snow bird migrating north for the summer?

My grandmother was out on a walk and some eagles were fighting over something above her and they dropped a great big salmon right in front of her. She took it home and cooked it for dinner.

Did she feed birds? I recently read a book in which a number of birds--usually crows--brought gifts to people that fed them, maybe tried to help an injured bird. I'm thinking the eagle fight was a disagreement over propriety, that they they were debating if the salmon was too much or too little for her.

It's a happier and probably better-informed place than where you are.

You read a condensed anecdote and suddenly you think my grandmother was Dr. Dolittle. Yeah, you're 'informed' all right.

That looked so intentional I want to think there is some bizarre backstory history between the trucker and the bird. You don't get bird bombed without a reason

The trucker owed the bird some money.

I tried to be friendly and tongue-in-cheek with you. You came back nasty. I supported my point, you came back nasty again. I'm in a better place, will remain there without seeing you again. Iggy.

A simple 'yes' to the fantasy world question would have been fine.

It was a swallow, actually. African, not European

I have it on good authority that African Swallows are non-migratory.

Carpe diem here?
Eat a fish everyday?
Especially when the bass drops?

I had a bird drop a fish on me while I was riding my motorcycle.  It was so surreal that it took me several seconds to even process WTF had just happened.

Hush.

You came across as a very tense and cross person.

But already, nobody remembers.

Move on.

Osprey catches fish in the water beside the highway.   Tries to gain altitude, fly to nest with fish.  Sees truck coming, realizes he's gonna get hit.  Drops fish to make himself lighter... Juuuust makes it...
