Because blogging is no fun unless you post 3 times a day.

I mentioned the hummingbirds earlier today, cute little inch-long things that I originally mistook for freakishly large bugs. I almost died for a second.

Anyway, they're wonderful, and mightily attracted to the 12-foot tall bush that has been perfuming my house. You may recall.

All day long, I've been hearing these random thunks against the window. Didn't really think anything of it. Didn't connect it with the birds. I'm an idiot sometimes. I've had the blinds and curtains all the way open all day to better enjoy the beautiful day, and the poor little things...

Anyway, I lowered the blinds. I feel so bad.


  1. ok so i'm having a blond moment. what does you lowering the blinds have to do with the birds?

  2. A bird doesn't understand glass, they think they have wide open area to fly in. So they fly head-on into the glass. Put down the blinds or pull the curtains, and they can see there is a barrier and then not fly into it.
