Bird on my ebike

Post by markz » Aug 22 2019 11:25pm

This bird was on my ebike handlebars for 20 minutes perhaps longer.

Yes, no grips on that build for a month or 2, until now, its the Chinesium kit grips. :lol:

A bird on the bike is worth two in the bush.

He mistaken your handlebar with a crowbar.
I’d say because it has no grips. :confused:
Make it fool-proof, and I will make a better fool.

I dunno. It isn't something I'd really squawk much about.

That's weird behaviour. Did it perhaps stun itself on the window? It's a black-billed magpie. They don't sit around like that usually.

Maybe a juvenile, or maybe it likes its reflection in the window. We have gila woodpeckers who like to peck at their own reflections.

Yes I thought it was weird that a bird would stay that long on the handlebar.

I did not see it land, I just kept an eagle eye on it once I noticed it.
