Just about to walk out the door when another bird hit the window. This one is barely alive. His eye is covered in blood and he can't close his beak. I wrapped him in a towel and brought him inside to the downstairs bathroom to keep him warm. I don't want to leave him alone.
I don't feel it's right to take a picture because he doesn't look very good. But I want him to be prayed for and remembered.
I'm going back down to be with him.
His eye is no longer red, but it's clouded over. His beak is almost closed and he's moving his head somewhat panicked. I don't want to scare him into a heart attack so I've left him to settle a bit. He's still in the bathroom wrapped in a towel in a box since it's too cold outside.
In the meantime, I've removed the decal to the window upstairs (the only one I'm able to reach) and done this:
I could give 2 sh*ts that it looks like Sanford & Son. I'm just mad at myself for not thinking of this sooner. The back windows are still a big problem though.
Going to check on the little guy. Be back soon.
Little guy's beak is closed!!! He doesn't seem as stunned. I took a quick photo (without a flash of course). He is such a sweet heart! This guy better make it.
The sun is shining brightly so I put him back outside to see how he does. He is looking at me like, "who the hell?" but he looks sooooooo much better!
Let's just say, miracles can happen:
I did not think this bird was going to make it based on the first few moments after he hit. Who knows if he's going to fly off and die but he certainly did not look like the same bird that was brought into the house. The bleeding eye makes me think he has a brain hemorrhage which could mean his brain is still swelling and then who knows what. But I want to think that he's going to be ok. I don't think he can see out of that one eye though. Do you think the clouding over will disappear in time?
Now I am going to attempt to leave this house without any more animal crisis's. That means no pooping on the countertops Chumley!!!
