Let this be a lesson to those of you who plan to visit Unalaska, Alaska (yes, it's a real city on Unalaska Island in the Aleutian Islands): If you park at Safeway with a garbage bag full of fish fillets in your pickup's bed, the eagles will find you. That's what happened above when an unidentified man parked his Nissan and returned to find a convocation of bald eagles feasting on his fish.

Neither the man nor those parked near his truck could get to their cars for fear of getting a beatdown from The 'Murica Bird, and police were called to break it up, which they did with neither beast nor fowl injured in the process.

Other than being awesome watching, other things we can take away from this video are the question who comes up with bird gathering names (a "murmuration" of herons and an "unkindness" of ravens?), and the bounty of this comment left by user "Abraham" at the KUCB news report: "It's just that the luxury edition has so much more eagle, it saddens me to think of you missing out." See what caused it all in the video below.

      "The luxurious seats are stuffed with eagle down and the dashboard inlaid with the beaks of a thousand eagles. Also, there are some eagles under the floorboards." Classic Futurama!

      I wouldn't even call cops or even try to break it off I would sit there and watch them let them eat

      Now that's a really patriotic pick up truck! Oh, wait, it's a Nissan... Oops!

        The Frontier is built in Smyrna, TN or Canton, MS, so it is American.

          These days everything is a homogenization of parts from many countries.

          Not much in the way of D3 domestic alternatives either, no Ranger or Dakota, just the Colorado / Canyon.

      They were actually dining on human flesh. Birdemic was a warning.

      Does this make the Nissan more American?

        Hardly. I think the symbol of America is pooping on the Nissan.

      I can't - and don't really want to - imagine what any of the paint or trim on those cars looks like after that.

        If you take it to the car wash, ASAP, it will be fine. My friend's car gets crapped on by Black and Turkey Vultures (They are in amazing numbers here in NW Ohio now) and it's a mess, the hood looks like acid was tossed on it. And in a way, that's pretty much what's being done, as Vulture "scat" is highly acidic. He's tried a bunch of waxes and polishes on it, with no luck. He needs to move to a house with a garage that will really hold two cars! There's a store down the road from me, and I've seen Bald and Golden Eagles, Hawks, and the Vultures up there, crapping all over it, while they warm up in the morning. I guess that's what they do up there. The owner has sprinkler heads up there to wash the roof off, mostly to keep the smell down.
