Today’s Wildlife Moment

We were just getting ready to have breakfast when we heard a strange noise.  We both looked at each other with that “what was that?” look.  To me it sounded like the window in the storm door coming down.  Jim thought it was something shifting in the freezer.   It didn’t sound like anything was broken, so we continued getting the milk, cereal and juice out.  After breakfast, I went into the bedroom to make the bed and discovered what made the noise.  A grouse flew head on right into the bedroom window.  Smashed a big whole in the glass and ended up breaking it’s neck.  P1080847At least it didn’t break both panes of glass.  Poor thing…what a way to start the day.P1080846Good thing we were planning on going to Superior today.    I had some pictures I uploaded to Walgreens and wanted to pick up and we needed to do laundry.  So we took the window along and will have to go back again later in the week to pick it up.

It was the first time we took our laundry to the big city laundromat.  This one was really nice…it has lots and lots of washers & driers, TV, video games and free Wi-Fi.  Very nice & very clean.  I love getting 2 weeks of laundry washed, dried and folded in about an hour and a half.

That's too bad both for the bird and the window. It's nice to find an establishment like that. Shows the owners take pride in their place.

Back home I had a huge picture window in the front room. There were several casualties (small birds) through the years. Never a broken window though. How much do you think the grouse weighed?

Such a shame Cindy, for you and the bird. WE've sometimes had insects bashing into our windows but never a bird, that we know of anyway..
I love sorting clean washing, whilst thinking , now that's over with ...(until the next time!!)...

Awww the poor little guy. You might wanna try putting some decals on your windows to help stop the bird collisions. I know there are lots of them out there ... here's just one page .. ttp://tinyurl.com/28gktpd But putting anything in the window would probably help some. :)
