All of a sudden, there was a huge THUD on the passenger side of his truck. He had no idea what had hit him. Never saw it coming. Birdzilla!
Actually, it was a turkey. According to the Bird Man, it most likely flew out of a creek bed and right into the truck.
In this photo you can see what happened to the antenna. It used to be straight. What you can't see is how much damage it did to the door - between the windshield and the passenger window. Must have been a big sucker.
He knew it was Birdzilla. She left her calling card on the antenna. Some might call it a feather.
I can only imagine what Cool Breeze was calling it when he realized what had hit him!
This incident has created a dilemma for us. Do we report it to the insurance company? If so, do I have enough photographic evidence to PROVE a turkey flew into the side of the truck? Will they laugh? Will they triple my rates if I file a claim? We have just added a teenage driver to our policy - can we afford the 327% premium increase when our policy comes up for renewal?
Why couldn't he have just hit a deer? Like normal people.
