Jomar Riveraruiz of Fredonia, New York was killed by a buzzard near the town of Evans on Saturday.
The 25 year old was riding a Honda motorcycle when he struck the large bird.
Riveraruiz was apparently traveling 55 mph when he hit the bird that witnesses say was flying across the road.
He was taken to Lake Shore Hospital where he was declared dead.
Buzzards are HUGE birds and collisions with them are not uncommon.
