Anybody ever hit one of these before?

Was out late the other night and then next morning I saw a wierd lookin wing sticking out from under the hood.

Dont these things have like a built in radar base?

I hit a whole flock of swallows 3 weeks ago I took 3 direct hits was a little gruesome washing the feathers and beaks off but luckily no damage.
A bat thats a new one by me the strangest thing I every hit was a heron when I was driving a plymouth turismo.that thing was a bird magnet, it had quite the body count.

I was heading home on Wednesday night from work in the Dodge, and there was a bird in the middle of the lane right before my driveway. I figured it would fly away, but instead, it just stayed there. I drove over it, and when I looked in the rear view, IT WAS STILL JUST STANDING THERE!

My kill list has been just a pheasant, skunk, and a jack rabbit. I've almost hit about 5,000 deer, 2,500 elk, 14 moose, 35,000,000 robins, 1,300 foxes, and a partridge in a pear tree.

Last time I pulled my skid plate to bang out the dents I found one of those in there. Guess his radar wasn't working either.

Raccoon, Deer, Woodchucks ( I hate them! ) and a Turkey.. No bats though.

The Turkey tasted mighty good too!
