What to do If a bird hits your window and is alive, but dazed:
- Pick it up and place it in a paper bag or small box with a lid.
- Put the container in a dark, quiet place, away from pets and children, close the door and leave the bird alone for 20–30 minutes.
- If you hear it scratching around in the bag or box, it’s probably time to release it outdoors.
- If the bird is injured, please take it to a wildlife rehabilitator. In the Twin Cities, the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center in Roseville treats injured birds.
