They've finally found something a Ford product can actually do!

If the eggs break, can Fomoco warranty those too?

We had a Canadian Goose egg in the cockpit of our boat this spring. No nest, just this big egg. There's some other bird nest on our club crane barge too. The female swoops at us when we walk by.
The birds must be feeding on pesticides or something.

I'll bet that dkozloski has some hair-raising stories about bird nests in the cowling of aircraft engines..........and I have seen a duck shot out the exhaust pipe of a 60 foot motor yacht.

Bird nest stories are pretty common. Usually it's just some smoke and stink. It only happens to you once because you look things over pretty close forever after. Snakes in a plane are interesting. I saw a guy land a little plane and as he was taxiing in a squirrel jumped out of the tail and ran off. A friend of mine was giving some boy scouts an orientation ride, a hamster got away from one of boys, and ran up my friends leg inside his pants right at takeoff. That was exciting.

It looks like a mourning dove, which is about the dumbest bird alive. We once lived in an apartment with a window-style AC unit mounted through the wall. Mourning doves kept dropping nesting material on the AC unit and the wind quickly blew it away. Eventually, the female left a couple eggs on top of the empty AC unit. They both rolled off and broke.
