Sadly, while I wasn't home, a hairy woodpecker crashed into our window and died. I have UV stickers all over, but I think I will need more to fill in the small gaps between, as soon as the temps warm up so they stick.
I have my suspicions that the local cooper's hawk was the cause. I have seen it, on many occasions, guide birds into our window and pull out at the last second causing them to crash into it. Never have I seen the hawk come back and take the body the few times i've witnessed this behavior.
I was just wondering if there was anywhere that would take the body. It's now frozen outside with these cold temps, but it breaks my heart to see it, and I was hoping there was somewhere that could use it for education or research.
