"Bird vs Machine". What happens when a bird flies into the rotor of a copter? This photo shows the answer: the bird comes out second best. 

Engineers of Bensen Aircraft found that in 3 cases out of 4, the bird goes through the rotor unharmed. But when a collision does take place, the rotor blade slices through the bird "like a dull knife" separating it into two pieces.
