Bird in Grill Africa

This story just came in from Jeanette (Beachy) Saffarek. She and her husband Kurt are visiting their son Luke in Botswana. They have been touring and camping extensively and have some interesting stories to tell, one of them is posted here. Enjoy.
"We have a great bird story too. Kurt hit a bird and 250 km later at a gas station the attendants all gathered around the car and were pointing at the front, I thought they saw our mouse, then one reached down and there was a horrible racket and he pulled the bird out of the front of the car and it flew away!!! It was wedged in head first."
