Did you notice any loud noises just prior to this event? My guess is .410

Have any Hawthorn Berry trees on you property? Those have some nasty needles. I've had them go thru leather gloves , while handling the limb wood. Get's your attention fast. Maybe the Sparrow went for a berry and caught a needle in the chest. I not sure if those berries are even a food source for birds. I know hawthorn berries are good for your heart, as an herbal remedy..
Did you try mouth to beak resuscitation to revive the little guy? :bug:
Are you near a wind farm? Just kidding.
I am with the kid with BB gun opinion. My neighbor shoots birds off his parents bird feeder all the time. I don't give him crap about it because I did the same thing when I was his age. Sad but true.
:lol: :lol: :lol: First you gotta do something about the sucking chest wound, though.
Everyone knows ya gotta use Silly Putty for that! :smirk:
Dang. Silly Putty. Of course! And maybe some Super Glue. But...they didn't issue either of those in our Navy First-Aid kits back when I was in. Just a big bandage thing with long ties. Mouth-to-beak resuscitation. MBR. Yes, I'll try it on the next (of many, I'm sure) stunned birds that bounces off one of our windows. Spring's coming, shouldn't be too much longer before I get an opportunity. I'll report back on the effectiveness of my efforts. Rick
LOL OK you do that.. I have a screened in deck and it has hole all over the screens from birds flying into them.. Guess they can't see them too well eh? Not too many birds at this time of year.. It'll be spring before you know it.. BTW I was in the Navy 75-78 and I don't remember getting issued a 1st aid kit.. Were you a medic?
