This poor Kingfisher slammed into the glass of one of my windows and was very poorly for about 20 minutes but slowly recovered and finally flew away. I hope it learned from the experience. The nest is of a New Zealand Fantail and I love the use it has made of lichen. Fantails are very small and active and so are very hard to photograph. One day I will get a good pictire to show.


  1. We've had birds get stunned like that. A cardinal few summers ago did the same thing. Poor animal looked like it was dead, but came to life after a few minutes and flew away.
