Stupid Crow

Published June 24, 2010 - 7 Comments

Is there a “bad luck omen” that goes with killing a crow?  I sure hope not, or I’m in big trouble…

Driving to work this morning, traveling down the road at my usual 90 km/hr, and I can see two large crows in the distance, standing on the road.  Crows are supposed to be smart birds, so I wasn’t really too worried about them as they both took to flight.  But… while one crow flew away, the other one decided to fly down the road, away from me… but still very much in the way.  I’ve never seen anything quite like it.  It didn’t take me long to close the gap.  I’m not sure how fast crows can fly, but it definitely isn’t 90km/hr.   The bird hit dead centre in my windshield and bounced up over the car, with a very solid *thump*.  I’m quite amazed that it didn’t crack the glass.

And no, there really wasn’t much of an opportunity to avoid him.  When he’s moving with traffic, instead of across the road…   He was a stupid crow.
