    Saving the Woodpecker!

    Been an interesting day in the Ozarks. A little bit ago we heard a big crash...went out on the porch to see what happened. On the ground below was one of the big red headed woodpeckers. He had flown into the glass and we thought for sure he was dead. My husband went downstairs to see. He was on his back but still breathing. He picked him up and started rubbing his back....after about 15 minutes he put him down...wobbled a bit then flew off to our great joy.. Didn't even have to give mouth to beak resuscitation but he would have...LOL Not many times in life do you get to make this kind of difference... We have rescued many cats but this is a first for a bird...he is so beautiful...bird and my always caring husband.

    Your husband is a very compassionate person thanks to both of you for rescuing the birds. I have an unnatural fear of animals including birds but cannot stand to see any of them to suffer

    Seeing the bird in your DH's hand makes one realize how big they are! Thank you for caring for him.

    I'm so happy you helped him! You can get stickers to put on your windows that look like owls or birds of prey and will keep the other birds from hitting the glass. Great work saving this lovely guy.
