Oddly enough, the only bird strike I've had was when a flock of seagulls *climbed* through my flight path as I approached an airport for landing. I was about 600' AGL and crossing a seashore at the time (in a Cessna 150) and the birds came up from the passenger side of the plane, they were completely invisible until I went through the flock. Small dent on right wing, but it made one **** of a bang when it hit.
