Northern Cardinal: Window Strike

For all the usual reasons, I didn’t hang the mesh netting over the bedroom window when I put up the bird feeder on the far corner of the patio:

Male cardinal - window strike death

Male cardinal – window strike death

That window is far enough away that birds get up to full speed and low enough that they can see through the windows on the far side of the bedroom to the bushes and trees north of the house.

The mesh is up now and I feel like crap.
