Bird Story and Mom's Visit

Coming back from the auto mechanic this last week in South Africa, I saw a stunning bird take off from the side of the road...


...it was a Lilac-breasted Roller, like the one pictured above.

My expression went from delight to horror as I watched the beautiful bird soar too low over the road. I heard a thump on my car. Looking in my rear view mirror, I saw nothing, and wondered what happened to the bird.

45 minutes later at the South Africa/Mozambique border, the official stopped me and pointed to the grill on my car.



Reaching down, he pulled up the bird and smiled. "Thanks for lunch!" he said.
