Crash, Bang, Wallop

There was a huge crash - something hit our window - we jumped out of our skins, it was so loud.  We expected to hear the sounds of glass shattering.

A pigeon crashed into the window.  If you look closely you can see the wings.
Then below that on the left is the head, eye and beak.
The body and the central chest bone, the legs and tail feathers.
We expected to see at best, a stunned pigeon, at worst a fatally injured bird as it really did fly full pelt into our new window.
But what we did see, was the bird flying off to the end of the garden unscathed!
Lucky bird huh? 

We've had torrential rain and it hasn't washed off the mark, so I'll have to do that tomorrow.  
I didn't expect to be able to get a photo of it without it being blurred into the garden flowers behind.

We are getting blinds fitted on Wednesday, so it should not happen again.


  1. Amazing that the bird is still alive!
    'Supposed to be lucky for the occupants and you're supposed to put out a small oferring of food and water/drink for the bird, dead or alive according to ? Thai beliefs.

    More work to do do 'eh??

  2. Oh dear!! Obviously didn't expect a building to have grown there lol!!

  3. Goodness me! I bet that was loud - poor bird! We had a similar incident last year. I was amazed by how much detail was left in the mark on the window... Love 'n' hugs, Mel xx
