Some groups of bird do have this "dust" and some don't. I don't have time to go 
into that now. I have seen that once before on a Canberra house and it was an 
impressive image. It was about ten years ago and I think we thought it was as 
good a guess was something like a galah. I am curious though at the ID of a 
Tawny Frogmouth. Probably as good a guess as any (I haven't seen the window). 
Presumably a bird hits a window beak first so the part showing the beak would 
be smudged and so may show as broader than it is. Should there be any dust from 
the beak?
