A Gray Jay?
Over the weekend, I was standing in the kitchen when a bird flew right into our window and dropped straight to the ground. When I went out to check on the bird it was lying with both of its wings out and looked completely dazed, if not dead! Grace came to the rescue of the bird, whom she immediately called a Gray Jay. I've sinced looked the Gray Jay up and it does indeed look like our little visitor, but it's not typical for them to be in our area and it's beak is a little longer than Gray Jays. So we are not really sure what it was? The sweet bird let Grace pick her up and hold her for at least five minutes.
She would stare straight at Grace and seemed perfectly content with her. I think it took Grace all of 30 seconds to fall hard for the little bird, but she was happy when she was able to fly off to a tree branch as that reassured her the little bird would be okay!
