    I was in the middle of posting when there was a bird crisis, afterward came back in the house and hit Post. Happily the bird crisis had a good ending, BIG relief.

    A male Hairy woodpecker flew into the house, door open a foot for ventilation. Ran into the window on the inside..stunned. I placed him outside and he lay there recovering for quite a long time, 20 minutes at least, panting, I shaded him from the sun. Then he flew up a few feet, but came back down. Sat on his heels for a while longer, and then flew off into a tree, apparently normally. PHEW! I was worried. I guess I figured their heads can take a big bang, with the drilling they do, but that's different from running into something. Happy ending this time at least, guess I'll have a smaller gap in the door for ventilation just in case.
