Dead bird?

Had no idea where to place this... but I got home today and noticed something odd on the lower front grille... a dead bird :/ I do recall seeing one earlier.. but anyway how do I get the sucker out from behind the grille? I didn't see any holes it could drop out of so do I have to take the front apart to get it out?!

Hahhaha..I don't mean to laugh but that's bizarre. You can probably pull the radiator shroud and reach down.

Straighten out a coat hanger, reach in there and yank him out.

Through the lower grille? I think you'd get pureed bird.

Only one I got and you can't see it :( drove home and hes gone... or just hidden. Should probably check that before it rots!

And Dylan, why doesn't Adams have a product for THAT?! Haha

LOL. I see it right behind the bar that comes down. That's hilarious. My sure he doesn't cook on the radiator. Grilled bird anyone?
