Bird in hand


This bird crashed into the window in a puff of feathers. Bird in hand! She was stunned, passed out in my hand for about 10 minutes, heart racing—so I covered her with my hands until the shock wore off). Then she sat there another 10 minutes tracking us (so I knew her neck wasn't broken). I had to goose her to get him to fly off. With a little nudging, the little finchster flew off to live another day! Kirk Whipple took the first photo, and I took the second one. We were staying at a friend of theirs cottage in an orchard in Forestville, recovering after the concerts.
