Bird Strike

Blue Jay

Pictured is a blue Jay that struck a window of the moon-in-cabin yesterday. It was alright, but it sat there stunned for several hours. I was able to approach it quite closely and other than turning its head to look at me, it did not move, until eventually it flew off. Last week a Yellow-shafted flicker hit one our cabin’s window. It was not quite as lucky as the blue jay. I found it dead, where it had fallen to the ground. It had a broken neck. Today, a third bird strike occurred. It was so loud that it startled me, but when I went to investigate, there was nothing there. The bird must have flown away.
