What to do when a bird hit's a window.

Submitted by BC Perks

In my porch I keep a little box that I made from 4 pieces wood 6inches square (top,2 sides and back).

If a bird knocks itself out on a window I heat up a microwaveable plate/dish warmer(not to hot). They are approx 6" diameter. I place the bird on the warmer and cover him with the little box making sure it has a view of the bird feeders and other birds.

Left there they can recover in their own time. I used to hold them but sometimes it takes a long time and in these cases the bird can become frightened.

The little hut also protects the bird from weather conditions and birds of prey whilst recovering.

How do I know if the bird is dead?
When do I decide to remove him from the box?

TipKing says: If it is motionless and cold.
