A chickadee flew against the kitchen windows twice while I was cooking on Sunday afternoon. He clung to the support of an outside lamp for quite some time. I grabbed my art journal and made a few lines that suggested the little bird's dilemma.
When I got to pen and ink and watercolor, the stunned look was gone. Instead this little bird looks quite at home, clinging to the lamp along the stone wall.
For the record, I walked outside after the bird hit the windows, trying to see what the bird saw. A strong reflection pattern, caused by the angle of the sun, must have confused the bird and caused the collision. After ten minutes or so of teetering on the lamp, he flew away.
