An alarming BOOM that came from the living room. The sound startled me but I was pretty sure I knew what it was whereas my friend’s eyes grew wide and concerned. What WAS that? she asked. I cringed as I told her a bird had hit our window. I’ve already buried one robin this fall.
In September, I bought a handful of upcycled lanterns (made from glass insulators – from electric wires, I think) to hang in my front porch. Home for lunch one day, 3 birds smacked into the side of my house, trying, of course, to nest in these tempting, shiney, hanging things. One bird died. The other 2 shook it off and flew away. I repositioned the lanterns so as not to be in the middle of the windows.
Thanks for taking good care of the animals. (Did Olive ever come home?)
