A bird kills itself on the windows....

Alan Svoboda, a designer, had an artistic take and said it was "kind of great."

Dip a pigeon in flour and press it carefully against glass? Yeah, that is fun to do. Not so much for the pigeon, of course. They squawk and squawk, but they get over it.

Stuff like this is what poetry is made of.

Practical to the end,
     it is the poem
of his existence
that triumphed
     finally;
a wisp of feathers
flattened to the pavement,
     wings spread symmetrically
as if in flight,
the head gone,
     the black escutcheon of the breast
undecipherable,
an effigy of a sparrow,
     a dried wafer only,
left to say
and it says it
     without offense,
beautifully;
This was I,
     a sparrow.
I did my best;
farewell.

-William Carlos Williams

birds are covered with a fine dander. Many I know who worked with or owned birds became allergic to them. Their homes, offices and labs ended up covered with the stuff.

I work at an airport infested with pigeons. We have lots of big glass windows and there are numerous such impressions.

libranoelrose: "I've seen better."
LOL


The terrible thing is I have seen better too. My parents have had a few birds fly into sliding glass doors. One time the bird left a much better imprint then that one. It was as if it tried to pull up at the very last second and bellyflopped into the glass. You could see both wings from tip to tip and and leading to trailing edge. You could see its beak, its eye, its feet, and all the individual tail feathers.

/we never saw the actual bird, so it must have been ok.

Witnesses report hearing a loud voice yell, "It's a living" just before impact.

"The white material might be a fine, waxy substance from powder down feathers. "

Or a bird who 'farking loves cocaine!!!'

Duh. What the hell else would the white material be?

I once had 6 pigeons hit my windshield. Every impact left that white stuff behind.

Uhhh...lol. By any chance has your doctor ever sent you for a Rorschach test. Because, if not, it might not be a bad idea.

I had a similar one at work. Some wag hung a sign next to it that read,"Transparent to the customer does not mean there is no impact on him."

You'd think they'd have those bird reflector things on the glass anyways.

My city has a public library branch next to a church with a tall bell tower.

The library is sheathed in big glass windows, in the bell tower lives a family of red tail hawks.

Children who visit the library are occasionally treated to the sight of a hawk killing one of the numerous pigeons around the church and library and then maybe ripping out its still warm flesh.

When the hawks are active, inside the library you will hear a "boom" when a panicked pigeon crashes into a floor to ceiling window while trying to escape.

Many of the library windows are covered with the images of greasy pigeon bodies.

I have a cockatiel, which are notorious for a) having large amounts of dander and b) being bad at flying, believe it or not. Jeremy left one of these on my bedroom mirror one day when he got spooked. I left it up for about a year.

/was single then, now the missus would go "awwww" and make me wipe it off
//she has cats, they ignore the bird, the bird ignores them

I like how they referred to it as an "unknown bird,".... unless they were expecting someone to look at the shape and say "Oh that's totally Bob."

/I'm assuming they name all of the pigeons

No flour necessary. Birds produce a fine dust in their feathers that helps keep them separated and properly waterproof. My patio door still has the dust imprint of my cockatiel, wings and all.
