My last bird strike was a BOS "heavy". Coming in over the bay...saw it (sea gull, may have been Jonathan) coming from the left descending..smacked my right wing, out near the tip. I was dropping off, and it looked inconsequential, so I paid my fees and ferried to Laconia. There a mechanic looked up what was legal. Used a broomstick through an inspection plate to shallow out the hit. Got home and reskinned the area.
As George Costanza says...they usually move.. (the pigeon episode)
That's the deal we have with them as I understand it?
