As I was taking pictures of this Cedar Waxwing (Bldg. 11B), a White-breasted Nuthatch crashed into the window right in front of me. It sat there stunned for several minutes, then flew into a nearby tree. I didn't get a good picture of it because I didn't want to scare it back into the window. I'll never know if he survived or later died from the head trauma.

"Collision with glass is now implicated in the decline of many migratory species in the U.S., second only to the loss of habitat."
"Much of the carnage can be avoided by purposeful and pleasing design and architecture."
"Most solutions do not impose great cost or hardship -- only awareness and a value system that considers birds and nature important to the livable quality of our urban landscapes."
