I’d bet she knows what kind of bird hit a Cleburne bus.

Hope they’re all safe, Steph.

If I ever get hit by a vehicle that's what kind I want it to be. That would be really convenient.

My KLR650 topped out at 103 mph. I hit a bird going that fast out towards Big Bend. Literally a Randy-Johnson-pile-of-feathers moment.

That was the refuge forum (Texas board). He was fine till he picked it up, thatís when the Fedís got all huffy & puffy.


BTW- my money is on a vulture dining on roadkill that underestimated the height of that ďbambulanceĒ

IIRC they were going duck hunting, hit owl and it lodged in ranch hand type bumper. At some point they decided to take a pic for a joke like they shot it during the hunt and posted on the forum.
Feds over reacted and caused at least one of them a bunch of headaches and a financial loss

Nannyslayer that was no tweety bird

My guess
1)buzzard
2)turkey
3)hawk
4) some other bird of prey

That's my guess. Watched a buzzard DESTROY the front end of a nice mid 80's model 4WD 3/4ton subrban running about 70 on 290 between Brenham and Giddings years ago. They were dining in the middle of the road and flew up when we approached but came down too soon after we passed and pyYOW!
There were car parts and buzzard parts flying everywhere.

Another vote for buzzard if it was daytime when it happened. At night I'd guess owl.

My assumption is a vulture but there wasnít much left to identify.

No one was injured in this incident other than Beaky Buzzard.

That ain't nothing but a scratch. You know you've hit something when you have a horse head come through the windshield. Long story, but I'm still here to tell about it.

Pucker factor! Try a bird strike in a DPS helicopter at 3am coming back from oil field theft surveillance outside of Ennis. Needless to say, neither Jack, Don or I had any problem staying awake for the ride back to Houston.

Had a buzzard take a low profile light bar off a car. Was doing around 120 to a shots fired at officer call.
Scared the stuffing out of me.

Back in the day we were sitting in AFD Rescue 15 behind the right field foul line at a Georgia tech baseball game and we had a foul ball hit the windshield. Luckily it didn't break because we were in service just riding around and decided to take in the game.

Had a brother throw a softball(I have no idea what he was doing with a softball, he was standing in the suicide lane) and hit the windshield of AFD Rescue 9 when I was driving to a call. This was on MLK in SW Atlanta. Didn't break that windshield either.

That must have been a big bird, or "that's my story and I'm sticking to it".
