This morning, an Eastern kingbird bashed into our window. Luckily, he's looking fairly perky after 15 minutes of sitting in the grass panting. And, oh, in fact, he's gone now.

Then, I saw a robin eating what looked like excrement from its nest. I take it there are babies in there now. I can't get a high enough vantage point to see inside.

Seems like all the birds except our domesticated ones are producing offsprings.
Another bird accident ended happily this afternoon. As we were eating dinner (and listening to Assassination Vacation), a blue-winged warbler bashed into the window of our front door. It sat, stunned, on our deck, where I had a perfect view of it, for about 10 minutes, but then hopped up and flew off.
