It can't just be my car, what's going on with the birds?

Are birds getting dumber?

For the past few months I have noticed a disturbing trend of birds attempting to fly into my car. I've been living/driving in the same area of town for a few years and have recently had to swerve to avoid common birds like sparrows and mockingbirds practically every day. This was not like this in previous years. While I don't expect birds to understand geometry and physics, they should take the shortest path to avoid my car. While this may all be anecdotal evidence, are others noticing birds being more oblivious to cars than before? I'm also perhaps compiling data on this subject for study purposes.
