The visitor center here at work happens to be the site of many, unfortunate, window strikes. We've had many hit. For some, the results are deadly. For other, more fortunate birds, the results are a momentary daze. I am not sure what to do to cut down on these strikes. I have many, many window silhouettes I could put up, and want to put up. However, the park hires window cleaners to come quite often to ensure those windows are squeaky clean. I'm not sure they would stay put. I may give it a try anyway.
Mostly it's smaller birds that hit. But we have had birds as large as flickers leave feathers behind on the windows.
Today's addition to Bird Photography Weekly comes as a result of one of those strikes - this little Lazuli Bunting was lucky, and flew off not too long after I took this picture. These are one of the prettiest birds. I love that blue head.
