Birds kill themselves in all ways... It will be roughly a million years before 
natural selection has selected birds that don't slam into windows and towers 
and such... Interesting that this topic should come up - I was hit by a bird 
this morning on the way to the office... Pitch black... I'm doing maybe 38-40 
mph on a rural road... In the peripheral vision of my left eye I pick up 
movement from the left and instantly there is a nearly deafening thud against 
the upper door post that rocks a 5,000#  truck...  The dog had been sleeping 
and he is up and scared to death it was that loud and that violent...  
In after vision my brain says it was speckled grey as it flashed through the 
reflected headlights off the pavement...  I stop and get out and expect to see 
damage, but the sheet metal and window looks ok in the flashlight... I turn 
around and go back looking in the big ditch and out in the field for the 
bird... I don't see it in the dark... It could have been a hawk but given the 
solid impact I more suspect a turkey... Wonder why it was flying the blackness 
and why it didn't avoid a white truck all lit up... I doubt it survived the
