Many motorists have experienced birds fluttering in front of their car, often flying in the same direction, but they get away at the last minute. Not always... A bird is flying in front of my car, with another bird, either fighting or playing, but the bird was too distracted I guess and flew out in front of the car while it was traveling 45 m.p.h. like 5 feet in front of it, or too late for a reaction. I did a U'turn and scanned the roadway meticulously, believing that if I couldn't find a bird corpse then there was no need for guilt. There near the scene was one dead bird.. (gruesome). In bird's memory I'm issuing a warning: roadkill doesn't always know how to make itself not be roadkill, despite God and/or science/evolution's best intent.. so if you can help be prepared to adjust driving to compensate (from a biological standpoint cars are new so the species wouldn't "adapt" quite this soon for moving metal masses through their habitat) you should do them a favor (unless you can't safely do so without being a risk to yourself or other motorists.) If you like hunting, then just apply the oppositte. At night try shining your brights at the last minute to captivate the racoon into a trance and swerve last minute to make your meal. I also learned a strategy from someone in Kentucky. Drive down a strip of highway and draw circles around all roadkill you see. Come back the next day to the same stretch of highway. Anything without a circle is good and fresh, Yum!
