a diary of death and windows

25th January, 2016. 1:46 pm. Time flies... until it stops

New project: http://seereflection.blogspot.com

Hopefully the history of this blog will vanish, aside from some of the sentimental things. Hindsight is chaos! But that's ok.

Window strikes
Wed Sep 29 17:45:43 2010
From: m_lndsy/////////SBCGLOBAL

Monday of this week I was working at Perry's Restaurant in the Woodlands and
came upon a female Common Yellowthroat setting at the base of a window. The
bird was setting up, so I captured it and it perched right up on my finger.
I took it to a nearby oak tree and coaxed it up on to a limb. I checked it
before I left and it was tucked up in full rousting position, so I think it
will survive.
Today I found an decimated Nashville Warbler at the base of a window in the
Clear Lake area. I was surprised it had laid there that long without anyone
disposing of it.
I have a window cleaning business and it is not uncommon to find birds that
have hit windows (most are doves), but warblers are not common at all..so to
see two in one week is exceptional..and of course it's always nice to find
survivors.

'survived strike' usually just means death elsewhere later =(

17th February, 2010. 8:09 pm. red-shouldered hawk, oh my

so i'm perusing my new favorite blog in the UNIVERSE (it's a Houston rehab group, started by the woman who patiently took in a dozen mourning doves, a cormorant, and a kestrel from me...) and here's a nice little post about the sadness of winter - http://wrande.org/2010/01/winters-injuries/

[things and stuff and emaciation and young birds and so sad and so weak and...] Three Red-shouldered Hawks have improved enough that they have been moved to a large flight cage for flight conditioning. One of these is the hawks has already appeared in this blog, it was the one that shattered an apartment window and had his neck and esophagus stitched.

GAH!
