Hey Buddy, Are You OK?


(“I’ll bet that really hurt!”)

Jody counts birds as part of Cornell’s Project FeederWatch and this week was the start of bird counting season in our back yard.

We had a flurry of activity yesterday and today (see the count at the end of this post) and as I was taking pictures of these Pine Siskins visiting our feeder, I heard the familiar “thunk” of a bird hitting one of our family room windows. These birds obviously heard and reacted to the sound too.

The good news is the bird who hit the window was fine and flew away so all’s well that ends well.

Cheers – DJD
