Hypothesis shot to pieces? Maybe not.

Well, there goes my theory about dirty windows preventing bird strikes!
Yesterday an immature Blackbird walloped into my crusty glass. However, I
think the bird detected a barrier just in the nick of time and decelerated
enough to not hurt itself too much because it instantly got up and flew
away. So maybe that reduces the probability of my hypo going out the window
- it's the first strike in six months.

  There's nothing quite like the feeling of seeing a new bird is there?
