Default Red bird

This bird flew into our front window and knocked him self silly. So I put him on the bird feeder to recover and keep him away from the cats. He came too after a while and flew away.

I'm glad the little guy was ok. It certainly gave you an opportunity for some great images for this challenge.

You should be ashamed taking advantage of an unconscious bird. I almost took advantage of an unconscious bird once, but I couldnt go through with it.

Ha! That's what you get for having clean windows. Last time a bird flew into one of my windows, I ate it (a nice sized partridge ((ruffed grouse to those who aren't from New England))). Let my windows get dirty and it hasn't happened since.
Super close-up!
