This one time i was on the highway and as I was driving under a bridge one of the pigeons that hangs on the bridge's structure dove right in front of my car and exploded on impact leaving feathers stuck on the bumper.

I learned later that sometimes birds dive in front of cars and escape at the last moment as a game. I guess that pigeon lost

actually, the reason so many pigeons get squishes is because - in order to fly at speed, its brain can process visual information three times faster than a human's. If a pigeon watched a feature film, 24 frames per second would appear to it like a slide presentation. They would need at least 75 frames per second to create the illusion of movement on screen. (This is why pigeons seem to leave it until the very last second to fly out of the way of an oncoming car: it appears much less fast to them.) sad but true
