3 July 2018 – American Robin

Although American Robin is one of the most commonly reported window strike victims, this is only the second time I’ve had one at the Noble Research Center. I found this fledgling/local bird in the northwest alcove.

8 June 2018 – Red-eyed Vireo

A storm blew through yesterday that dumped 3″ of rain on central OK. Evidently caught up in that mess was this Red-eyed Vireo in the southwestern alcove.

30 May 2018 – Kentucky Warbler

Today brought a new surprise – the 64th species casualty at the site, an AHY-male Kentucky Warbler, fat = 0, CP = 2. Note the broken lower mandible.

29 May 2018 – Brown Thrasher

Found just the second ever Brown Thrasher as a window-kill victim at the Noble Research Center on the OSU campus in Stillwater. This was an AHY female with a well-defined brood patch, no fat, and no obvious collision injury on the bill.
