    That bird was a real peckerhead. Sorry couldn't resist.

    Go over it very closely to see if it got past the clear coat. Some of those scratches look deep to me but maybe I'm just seeing things. Good luck and sorry for the bad luck. Go find it, snap its neck and eat it for dinner. That will show it who's boss. :D

    Wow, you have a lot more self control than I do. That bird would have met my M&P .45

    My buddy has red birds that do that to his mirrors. We have to put sacks on the mirrors or the bird will go nuts on 'em.

    I have read that they don't like their reflections. It be the enemy. :(

    Update:

    Insurance company is having VIN issues with my vehicle.

    I have since bought a car cover.

    I had that problem with my car getting it insured, nothing found on VIN from esurance and dealer wouldn't give me the keys until I could prove I had insurance.

    But I feel for you, I live in Spring Hill which is Sand Hill Crane haven. Too many times to I have to come to a squealing stop because they feel it's their right of passage to casually cross highways US 19.

    Tho I have laughed a couple times at the small white cranes, I've seen a few times where one is ontop of someone's car that left the sun roof open and they're shitting into the open top.

    They're cardinals and I've seen plenty of cars in Florida that routinely place covers over their mirrors to avoid the damage.

    Update: insurance finally came through to get it all fixed. Check is in the mail.

    I caught the damn thing at it again the other morning, I forgot to put the cover on when I got home late one night. Thankfully it only got a couple pecks on the rear quarter and I rubbed them off with soap and water. How unlucky am I?

    That's good to hear!

    I think the better question is "How lucky is that damn bird?" :paddle:
