when the sun hits it just right

On nice days we enjoy our very nice very large front window. It is, to this day, one of our most prized takeaways from the massive (massive meaning entire thing...top to bottom...outside to inside) remodel we did to our home a few years ago. Birds enjoy nice days as well. Given the conditions they see our window as an outstanding exploration opportunity beneath their wings. "Wow! Check out that hole right in the front of that house! I'm heading in for a closer look..."THUMP. Lights out. Forever.
This little fella's trajectory of death propelled him into our gate window. Which made it very difficult to close later that evening. Kidding. Mrs. Haffner Home called a neighbor as this occur ed during the early afternoon. He was nice enough to come assist with the carcass removal.

That is hilarious!!! Okay, maybe not so funny at the moment, but I'll bet when he hit, he saw stars and heard his bird friends' chirps before he nodded off forever! Guess this just means that your lovely wife keeps the windows so sparkly clean, that they have no idea they're about to crash into a death trap - yep, that wouldn't happen here at my house!!! hahaha!
