Window Collisions

Millions of birds die each year in the United States from colliding with windows. Some birds simply become stunned as a result of a window collision, but even if a bird is able to fly away it might have internal injuries that could result in death. If you suspect that a bird has become stunned from hitting the window or wall, put it in a shoebox with holes and a soft towel.  In many cases, birds are just stunned and need some quiet time to recover in a dark place.  If the bird is more seriously injured, contact Wildlife Images (541) 476-0222, located in Merlin, Oregon.
