If a bird hits your window and doesn’t fly away after you go near you should put it in a dark box with a few holes for air. Do not try to feed the bird. Call your nearest wildlife center for advice as it is illegal to have wild birds unless you have their permission. After an hour, open the box outside, if the bird flies away, great if not, then bring the bird back inside and try again a few more times. If the bird doesn’t fly away or is unconscious or stunned bring it to a wildlife rehabilitator. Most birds die of an injury, brain damage, or internal bleeding. Stunned birds if not rescued often get eaten by hawks or cats.
