    Default OT: Homeless bird.

    OT: Homeless bird.

    About three o'clock this morning an overhead tree branch crashed onto my
    roof. About a minute after that there was bird flying into my windows.
    The limb must've taken it's nest and the bird with it. It was fluttering
    like crazy, clawed to the window screen. It was very disoriented. I
    couldn't tell if it was hurt but when I shined a flashlight on it and
    instead of flying off it fell to the ground.

    It spent the next half hour clawing other screened windows fluttering
    like mad, as if to say "what am I going to do now?"

    Rebuild.

    I know most birds bed down for the night and in the pitch blackness I
    wondered if it could even see.

    To add insult to injury. to inspect, I rushed into the living room and
    the security alarm blared to life! Ouch!

    I didn't ID the bird. And ouch to you, too, my fine feathered friend!

    OB Food: Deli roast beef w/horseradish sauce and roast turkey
    w/guacamole English muffin sandwiches and the last glugs of ice-cold
    milk.

    Placing bird houses way up high on trees would go a long way to solve
    that problem, I have more than a dozen... and untold numbers reside in
    my barn.
