A weird thing happened on the way to work yesterday.
Driving up the 101 freeway, I saw a bit of commotion ahead of me and then swerved a bit to avoid a large bird standing there in the middle of the roadway. I figured that it must be too injured to fly and was probably not going to last too long if it could not take to the air. Glancing in my rear-view mirror, I saw a car behind me come really, really close to hitting it, might’ve even brushed it a bit, and the bird then took to flight and got away. Perhaps the bird was having some difficulty flying but it got a little boost of adrenaline that did the trick?
It’s not every day that you nearly kill something on the freeway.
For any birds who are reading my blog, it’s not a good idea to hang out on freeways. I suggest avoiding them if you can.
