I don't know if it's just me, but it seems that birds everywhere
*hate* the sound of a car reversing. Back up, the bird flies off every
time. Best, of course, is to spot it in enough time to slow down
before you reach the bird, second best seems to be to pull around.

Does that match what other people experience?
