Along the order of "you can't even make this stuff up".. while running a 7 minute mile pace, I was running through a park on the San Jose/LG border and a pidgeon flew into me from around a tree. It struck me on the left shoulder and crashed to the ground. It appeared to have a broken leg and wing.. I called Animal Control Services to report the incident, they took my info and a witness email to validate what had happened. They said someone would be out in an hour or so and I was free to go. Now it begs the question... was that a sign?? LOL (Fri 26)

True life can be stranger than faction. Can’t believe this story. You weren’t hurt? 7/26 10:42 pm
It almost felt like getting hit by a slower pitched baseball.. small red mark on me, nothing broke any skin... so I just called santa clara county parks to find out what to do about the bird. Didn't have to file any police report, just an incident report with SCC Parks. It hit me on the shoulder, the careened into a tree, then onto the ground. I have tripped over cats, dogs, even had a baseball hit me at a field where a little league team was playing.. but never a bird lol 7/27 9:05 am
Glad you weren’t hurt James. Could have been bad. 7/27 8:45 pm
Thank you, Bob! Yeah, it hit the bony part, not soft tissue. For the amount of time I spend running these days, I consider myself pretty lucky.. dogs kind of scare me the most.. getting chased hasn't happened yet.. it has before. 7/29 9:19 pm
