I'm slightly embarrassed to be confessing this, but here goes.

The other day I was driving along, and I spotted a large hawk downed in the middle of a four lane busy road. It was so sad to see it there, its feathers still fluttering in the wind. They're such majestic birds, and we have tons of them in this area but I'd never seen one hit by a car--usually they keep their distance from humans and human activity (but guard those small pets!).
So I was all melancholy as I got closer to it...until I realized it wasn't a hawk at all.
