And, the Bird went BANG!

I heard a loud BANG this morning and I could have sworn something broke through one of our windows on the back porch. Well, thank goodness the window was in tact but this little guy gave himself one heck of a headache. I'm hoping it isn't brain injury but there are some feathers and spit left on the window. video I did return to the house to get a warm, knitted glove and he let me pick him up and carry him out to a tree in the sunshine. My intervention probably added heart attack to his symptoms but I was kind, soft voiced and I gently stroked the feathers on his back in hopes that he might get warm, feel comfort and or even get peeved and fly away. It's pretty cold out there for an injured birdie. And, I have to leave to head up to the school and then all the way across two towns to the "Big City." So, I won't be back until after 1:00. I hope he makes it. Poor Lil'Fella. That must have been one heck of an insect he chased up to our porch. It happens fairly often. Though, he's only the second bird to have a total knock-out. The first was a humming bird. He actually fell to the ground and "sat" there. And everyone knows hummingbirds don't sit. I took a picture with the camera and that startled him enough to fly back out on his path. :-) Happy Hum-Diggity! Hope your's is betters than his!
[Editor's Note:  The bird is fine.  I peeped on him with I left while he was sunning.  He startled, jumped up to his feet and twitched his tail, as if woken from a trance.  When I returned he had apparently flown off.]  :-)

I'm glad he's ok. That's not a very good start to the morning!

Aw, poor birdie. I didn't know about the Humming Bird. I need to see that pic!
Ah, I think it's time to get window covers. I know, it's a hard thing to do, especially when the Sunrise/sunset pics are so great! But, just think of how many birdies you will save from a migraine?

I'm sure this wouldn't happen if you'd leave off cleaning the windows, LOL!

Poor bird. I'm glad it's okay.

poor guy. if it becomes a habit, you can put sticky decals on the window. I don't know how well it works, but I've heard it creates "perspective" so the birds can see the window. Anything that'lll break up the reflection for them (i.e. stick on feeders, stickers, etc.) But I'm not sure I'd worry if it was only the 2nd time. probably just a fluke of lighting and distraction.

Kcinnova is right. If you're windows were as dirty as mine, this would never happen. And now I get to tell people I'm just trying to save the leetol birdies. ;-)
