Ouch! I bet that gave you a fright. I guess it was lucky it hit something that you can replace and lucky you didn't get a goose in the face.

A big damage to the front screen. I am sure that was quite scary when seeing the goose smashed the front screen while driving.

Nice customization of your car. Electric windows, and the seats too!!!

My wife hit a Canada Goose at highway speed (albeit in a Jaguar XJR, not the mini). Over $10,000 damage. Not sure if you have smaller geese there, but you got off relatively easy, if I am correct looking at your photo there is no body damage, just glass - and thank goodness you are OK!

very very lucky and lucky to be able to stop without hitting anything with the windscreen shattered.
