Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
and a bird on my car

That would be a Kea, our other (unofficial) national bird.  And you're lucky the car was still there afterwards - Kea are famous vandals.

(Why our other national bird?  Well, while the quiet, nocturnal kiwi symbolises our harmless, peaceful, too-stupid-to-live side (which we cherish), Keas are all about curiousity and mischeiviousness - without needing beer to aid the latter.  They're a pest, but we're quite fond of them...)
