An employee at the office park took this picture of a stunned Northern Flicker (Bldg. 7C).  He saw and heard it hit the window as he was walking by.  But by the time I got there it was gone.  I'm not sure if it was able to fly away or if a cat got it.

 Science Is Finally Making Glass That Birds Won't Fly Into
Part of the tests, therefore, involve spreading lines or visual cues out farther to see when they no longer deter birds. Mr. Haffey said that vertical lines are believed to work best at four inches apart, while horizontal lines need to be spaced every two inches.
"We're going to see how far we can stretch the limits," Mr. Haffey said. "The fewer lines you have on the glass, the happier the architects are going to be."

"But if it means saving that many birds, we can stand the occasional eyesore."

The scavengers are out in full force, so I did not post the pictures of the goldfinch and robin. Too sad.

On a lighter note... (because we can't just post dead bird pictures all the time), Chrissy found a duck nest and a chipmunk hiding in a wall today.
