You oughta see a California Condor get startled and take flight. They poop and vomit simultaneously while on their take-off roll. I've been told it is to lighten the load and get in the air as fast as possible.

Today on my way to work, a woodpecker flew right in front of me. I've heard them many times, but that's the first time I've actually seen one. Very pretty bird.
