Bird

A bird just hit my window. It made a loud thump, which frankly startled me a bit. I'm on the 7th floor, and things don't usually bang on my window.

(Hey Fred: It was smallish, dusty brown, short dark-colored beak, with a surprised look on its face. Any idea what it was?)

    Did it survive?

  5. The bird appeared to survive. Though, it did look confused.

    Oh, and his nose, I assume, is not the worst place Dr. B has had his hands today...

  9. Odds are it was a house finch. Non-native and abundant in urban areas, but there are numerous LBBs (little brown birds) around in winter.
