Do birds get struck by lightning?

I was driving Noah home from Kuk Sool classes last night, and we were watching a storm approach. I had a hard time keeping my eyes on the road, because there was such a great lightning show going on in the distance.  A flock of ducks was flying along with us, which prompted the question: Do birds get struck by lightning?  We had a good ten-minute discussion about that, wondering why we don't see scorched bird bodies all over the ground after a thunderstorm.  Noah is always a great partner for interesting discussions.
