At work a flock of Pinyon Jays were slamming into the cathedral windows relecting a Conifer. All but one was okay, slumped over on the ground. After giving the Jay a protected hour of warmth and cover, the Jay was then able to bolt into the conifers again, yeah! I felt honored to learn about the Pinyon Jay, and then put up some Window Alert stickers to prevent further strikes.
