White-breasted Nuthatch hits the window!

Eddie had a White-breasted Nuthatch hit his window today and knock himself out. He went to check it out, snap some photos - and then it flew away. Poor little bird! I suggested he buy one of those bird decals you can put on the window to prevent such accidents. I bought some this week after a Mourning Dove hit my kitchen window.

The birds will see a reflection of themselves in the window and sometimes want to attack the "other bird." Apparently over a millions of birds die this way each year! Here's a link to Bird Watcher digest that provides tips on how to prevent this from happening:

Save the birds!!
