Rt. 539: Unsafe for Any Species

As an addendum to my previous post, regarding the danger of being on Rt 539, here is an eBird report from today:
Black-billed Cuckoo
Bird was glanced by a car and sitting stunned in the middle of the road. I moved it off the road and sat with it until it flew to a low branch.
It's bad enough I have to keep an eye out for impatient drivers who think they can make the turn into oncoming traffic (me); or pass that north-bound dump truck while I'm going south; or that I have to watch for deer loping across the road. Now I have to worry about low-flying cuckoos.
