Red Robin recovery We were on a small break in a small residence around the Dutch coastal area. This Robin flew full strength into one of the windows and blacked out instantly. We took care of it and about 15 minutes later it stirred again. A few minutes later it started hopping and flew away again. What an impact that must have been! Glad to have rescued such a beautiful creature. Never saw one from this close. May your path be favoured further on, Robin!

  3. Yeah! Round of applause! I do hate it when birds fly into the windows but it is quite remarkable how they manage to recover. Posted 5 years ago
