I found myself on a run called El Dorado, which is far off the beaten path and seldom visited by me. I enjoyed the deepest and most sublime turns of this season. Right there, for a few minutes everything in the world was perfect.

Holy shit that's a cool pic.

I'm surprised the bird stuck around long enough on that cable to get entrapped into the mechanism.

Must have been a retraded bird.

Yeah, something doesn't add up. I didn't take the pic, but the story was related to me. The carcass was discovered after it tripped a grip attach switch on the departure side of the terminal. There were 5 other switches it could/should have tripped before that one, which leads me to believe that the bird got crushed somewhere near the outgoing end of the terminal. But once the rope leaves the horizontal deflection sheaves (near the bullwheel) there isn't really anything on top or to the side of the rope to smash the bird like that. And the way it's pressed into the side of the rope suggests that it was the horizontal sheaves or the bullwheel that did the bird in. So, I don't fucking know how it happened, but thought it was worth sharing.

He was either retraded, or already dead. We see birds ride a moving rope all the time, but only for a few feet before they take off. More often than you might think, we find dead birds still perched. Just standing there with their little feet gripped around something, fully upright but dead as shit. It happens more with smaller birds like hummers or juncos. I've never seen it happen to a gray jay (the mess in the pic).


They said when they found it there was just enough wind to make the wing flutter like the bird was still struggling. Humorous.

This is why I stopped napping on lift cables. Sooner or later, something bad is gonna happen.
