Suzette wonders if white cars are especially likely to draw unwelcome attention from our fine feathered friends:
Do birds have some kind of fatal attraction that compels them to fling themselves at their own peril towards white cars? Does this happen with all white cars? Does it happen to you?
I’ve encountered only two suicidal avians in the past six and a half years of driving a vanillamobile, and one of them was a pigeon, perhaps more likely to be deranged than despondent.
What birds do fling at this car, however, is usually vaguely whitish, though obviously no attempt is made at color-matching.
