Lying on its side, the brownish gray bird struggled to pull itself toward the grassy median.Â Turbulence created by passing motorists sprayed fine bits of gravel and dust over its feathers and into its eyes. After reaching the edge of the asphalt, it could go no further.Â
Resting after such an effort, it did not hear the vehicle stop some distance behind it.
Surprised by the hands that suddenly pressed against its wings and heavy body, the bird used its large webbed feet to push against the manâs waist. With its long, sharp bill it nipped at his arms.
