ugh window injury

Noodles is fine BUT she called out to the birds (as always) and one came slamming into the window-- this has happened for many years since I adopted her (despite window indicators etc and small windows!!!), but this time, it was bad (I swear it is Noodles and not the windows-- honestly...I can go into that some other time)

There is no visible blood, but the bird is nearly dead I think..maybe a broken neck? Whatever the case, it was below freezing, so after about 5 minutes of fretting and looking for a small box, I dumped out an Amazon purchase, lined box with paper towels and covered with a ragged towel..

The poor thing is not well....I called wild bird rehab within 30 m of the incident, and I THINK (??) She is still alive, but very out of it...her body feels warm, but that's about it...She's in a box in the bathtub with lights off and door shut...Dk if there is hope, but I hope so..

Re: ugh window injury

Also-- about 20 min after the incident, I made a donut shaped paper-towel support and popped her feet into it to keep her upright (she was on her side, then on her back outside-- so within 10 min of bringing her in, I put her upright for breathing purposes)..and my house is warm..she pooped at some point, which may be good....but who knows....It's bad. I doubt it if she makes it.....seriously....but, if you want, say a little prayer.
It's a sparrow- I have named her Sandwich (poor girl-- with a goofy name)

Re: ugh window injury

I'll certainly say a prayer for your little Sandwich! We get birds slamming into our windows fairly regularly, half the time it's rainbow lorikeets who fly VERY fast and hit the glass very hard indeed. It's surprising how tough they are, they often just wobble about and shake their head for a few minutes before they take off again almost as if nothing happened. Perhaps just a bit of warmth and quiet might be all Sandwich needs. Thank you for taking her in, and I hope the little sweetie pulls through!!

Sending healing thoughts to poor Sandwich. Thanks for being good samaritan offering warmth, shelter, and a good heart.

Re: ugh window injury

Sometimes they can recover, given enough time for brain swelling to come down...
Prayers for a recovery.

Re: ugh window injury

Yiu might put this up, I use it and birds don't hit my window.
Might help you with birds strike and provide interest and entertainment.

Re: ugh window injury

Here's hoping little Sandwich recovers and can take another slice of life. Poor things , they are not bread for interaction with un-natural surfaces like glass.
