This morning I heard a hard bang on my window and peeked out and saw a YB Sapsucker lying in a crook of my large Rhododendron bush. I went out and found the bird alive. It peeped when I picked it up ( its wings were slightly pinned by the branch/trunk) and it settled against my fleece robe. I tried to sooth it as I took it out back to the post with the apples that it has been eating, and placed it just above the apples. It puffed up and I watched from inside as it just sat there. about 15 to 20 minutes later when I checked, it was gone. I hope it was only stunned and recovered.
