Last week as I sat at my kitchen table I heard a sickening thud and saw a bird drop from the sky. In that instance his graceful flight was abruptly transformed as he hit the glass wall and fell victim to gravity. I ran outside and found the poor thing trapped nose down between the long spiky leaves of a large cordyline shrub. I took him between my palms and held him securely trying to calm his little beating heart. Thankfully within a few moments his wings started to flutter and I was able to release him to the sky.
This morning the sun revealed this on the offending window.
