Like I said last week, I’m mot much of a bird photographer. However when a bird comes flying into your living room window full speed ahead, you get your bird photographer hat on in a hurry! As was the case of this little guy. I was just changing the lens on my camera to go shoot another photo in my basement, when I heard a loud thud on my window. My first thought was maybe some kids accidentally hit my window with a ball or something. When I looked out I saw this little bird laying on my deck.
At first I just went out to see if he was ok, he kind of hopped up and moved over a little. The bird then sat there with his mouth open, opening and closing his eyes. The scene made me think of the Family Guy clip when Peter fell and hurt his knee haha. Since I had my camera ready to go I went and grabbed it and shot a few photos. He stayed on my deck for over 5 minutes (I even had time to change lenses), then he started hopping away. I followed him to see if he was going to be able to fly away. The bird eventually hopped across the street and into some bushes where he just sat there, I decided I’d better just leave him alone at that point and let him rest and gather him self. I’ll go check on him later to see if he made it out of there. I hope so!
Thanks for stopping by, Rob
UPDATE: I went back to check if he made it out of the little spot he had in the bush and he was no where to be seen, so I am assuming he rested, gathered himself and got back to flying into other peoples windows 😉
