he just needed someone to look after him while he got his wits about, i guess. he probably knows you saved him, and that's why he's so tame around you. :V

He seems like he's totally fine. He recovered REALLY fast. o-o I thought he was dead when I went to pick him up (I was already getting ready to bury him xD)
I just mailed the wildlife center to see if they think it's safe to let him go now, or if they'd still want a look at him :3

Woodpeckers. They peck trees. I think I may release him tomorrow.

The only danger you have at this point is a core-coy injuring. It takes many months to heal, and they need to be kept very quiet and not allowed to fly. If he's flying upward 8 ft. he's likely fine. I don't know how to spell the word, but it's a common injury with a window strike. If he's flying around, I'd release him. Captivity is very stressful. If you can keep him quiet till Monday, and wildlife rehab is a good option. They can check him over. Excessive sleeping may indicate a brain swelling, and he'll die. Best of luck. Great you took him in. Talk your parents into window decals that protect birds from window strikes.

He's crazy now, super alert, and even hops around upside down on the cage bars. He just needed a few hours I think :D The wildlife center said he is likely fine now, if he flies away tomorrow when I open the cage he's good to go. They said if he can't fly away to bring him in.

I had a tiny sparrow hawk do this but he wasn't stunned. He flew around my apartment and attacked the guy I was seeing at the time. It was hilarious. He new something about him....... I should have listened to the wise bird. I also had a wild duck I rescued from a group of boys who hit it with a baseball bat and were going to do it again. She lived in my bathtub and showered with me xD. When her wing healed she was released back with her boyfriend who waited patiently for her at the pond.

Aw, congrats!! You're such a bird angel. I could never take in an injured bird- the cat would destroy it.
