Watch out for low flying birds

Not that you shouldn't be paying attention while driving, but now you should be paying extra attention. It's that time of year when the birds have things on their mind other than looking out for cars. 

Apparantly as part of some courting dance, this morning a pair of robins were performing chaotic aerial acrobatics by the side of the road while I was driving past.  As bad timing would have it, they decided to move the performance into the middle of the road forcing an abrupt braking on my part.  The good news is the robins managed to fly under my front bumper unscathed. Also good news is my catapulted Mac laptop survived its unexpected crash flight off the front seat into the firewall.  (No, I wasn't using the laptop at the time - it was in a bag.)
