NWS for squeamish: Found a dead frog in the lower grille today

I was cleaning the car today and as usual the front end is covered in bugs. So I start the daily ritual of wiping down the front end and notice what I think is a small stick coming from the lower grille. Looking closer I found a dead frog stuck to the grille. Apparently I must have caught it in mid leap because he was stuck in the exact position as below. Poor guy.

I once hit a black bird at 75 that flew up from the ditch. We were heading over to my moms and were a mile away at the time. When we got there my wife got out and walked around the front and yelled EWWWWW Your Cleaning that up. The black bird was in the corner of the head light and the feast of worms he just had were ALL over the place. What a mess to clean up.

Found a bird in mine. Wings spread wide open. Almost took out an owl over the weekend. Got some tail feathers in the license plate.
