Today a yellow-billed cuckoo flew into our picture window on our back deck. (I spared sharing a photo of the dead bird and found one on-line instead.) I am so sad. I'm sure he broke his neck. I have these sticky leaves that I have put on my window that I purchased from the Wild Bird store in Wichita. They are supposed to keep the birds from flying into windows. I believe it has cut down on how many do. But sometimes it still happens. When it is such a beautiful bird as this one, I just cringe. Does anyone have any other ideas on how to prevent this?
