So I hit a bird.
I was doing 70 on the left lane, and had between 2 and 3 seconds to react. In retrospect I probably did the right thing -- too little time to hit the brakes, and swerving would have been too dangerous. Besides, chances are the pigeon would have been hit by the guy right behind me anyway, also doing 70. Regardless of the rationalization, I can't help feeling terrible.
On the bright side, no damage to the bumper.
