Blue-headed Vireo Window Strike
All those raptors make for some very paranoid birds. A young blue-headed vireo was spooked by a kestrel and ran headlong into my buildings plate glass window. Two police officers found the bird and were standing there with it as I came home. I took him in to see how bad it was. No visible head trauma or blood but it was not opening its eyes fully. It did let out the cutest alarm call which I recorded, but rather than risk it, I took him into the WBF. Hopefully he will put through. Ill try to follow up with them to see how he did.
