At my 1st delivery today a bird flies into my truck and smashes into the window.  Looked dead.  I pick it up and put it on my dash.  After about an hour it starts to sit upright and watch me. Stayed in the truck for another hour before it flew away.

I don't think we have Goldcrests in the US, do we? I think ya may have a female golden-crowned kinglet there....I have them hopping about in my spruce tree.

thats a Muffinhead sparrow, you can tell by the yellow streak down its head. the genus name is glennusstupidious. They have the desire to fly into windows due to the fact that half thier head is full of fluid and it counter balances thier directional fortitude.  they eventulaly peck themselves to death from sheer ignorance of looking for fleas to eat.
