Now I’m home from a Highpointing trip, enjoying dinner at my kitchen table, cats lounging nearby. We are suddenly jolted by a sharp WONK! on the window. Instantly, both of my felines are at the glass, staring out toward the yard where, lying on its back, twitching, is a downy woodpecker. I give it a few minutes as I’ve seen birds do this before. They stun themselves by flying at great speed right into the glass pane, they fall down, they twitch, they shake it off, they fly away.
