I have had this exact same experience here in Pennsylvania years ago. One morning I walked out to my car and my entire driveway and car were totally covered with bits of meat like stuff, red colored. I was totally baffled and even called the police thinking that some foolish teenagers threw something nasty at my new car. I felt embarrassed when the policeman arrived and told me he believed that birds had probably settled in the trees above and excreted this stuff and I now firmly believe the police officer was correct.

Could this be related to ‘Manna from Heaven’?

I remember Manna being characterized as bread like, but I could be wrong…
