Have you ever had a bird fly into a window on your house?

Yeah, my own! She hasn't done it in a while, thankfully

I dated a guy who had a bird fly into his window over and over again. Probably a dozen times in a row. The same window, around the same time of day. There were streaks all over the kitchen window from the birds beak. It did this for a couple weeks. Surely it killed itself doing this. It would hit the window really hard.

Way too often. Sometimes I find the dead birds in the garden below the Windows

Yes, one time a pigeon flew into our sliding glass door while we were eating dinner and then a hawk came in and picked up the stunned bird

The basement window. This bird would crash into it for 30 minutes each morning until I put a sheet of paper on the inside of the window.

It happens in my bedroom window. I am awakened by this bird flying into my window. Every day.

Sucker for punishment or knocked stupid?

Yes, one time I put the bird in a box, and drove it to the vet. It was just stunned, and started flying around the room.

We've rescued them from cats more than once.

Happens all the time. My cat must think God is dropping snacks from the sky.

Every single day. More than once. We have plenty of bird feeders though so that increases the possibilities.

Our entry way has two huge windows on the second story and birds frequently fly into it. It's pretty loud but thankfully we have yet to find a dead bird outside.

Two years ago, a grackle hit my family room window hard. I looked out onto the deck and saw it in the snow looking up. Just then a hawk dropped onto it, took it to the corner of my backyard, stomped it several times, then flew away with it. I'm guessing the hawk had chased the grackle into the window to begin with.

It's a surprisingly high cause of death in birds.

No but I would be scared if it happened. We do have a screened gazebo and at one point birds were getting in. They made a mess of the screens even with the door open and me trying to chase them out.

Yes. And into the house through the chimney, and into the house through the open front door. (Both of the latter times involved multiple cats.)

I heard growing up that it meant someone you know was gonna die.

Yep. And most of them die.

Dumb little chickadee. It bounced back unto the railing and a few seconds later flew off. I've had birds fly into the house and garage. We have a contest with cats to see who who catch it first and set it free (so they say, but I don't believe them).

Yes, once when I was little. It stayed alive for 17 whole seconds until my cat got it and ate it. Birds dont come near my family's home anymore. Or at least, they didn't until I went to college and took my cats with me!

Yes. Always seems to be a Cardinal. I feel like that's some EPA violation for that and I'm going to be arrested.

Liberals will be banning windows next. It's for the birds! You do care about birds right? Birds lives matter!

No but in our old house they used to come down the chimney. A very unpleasant surprise to hear a loud noise and walk downstairs and a bird be in your house.

Several times a year, at least. It almost never ends well for the bird. Luckily our resident herd of crows are all too smart to do something that dumb - I'm pretty sure they are big enough to make it through the glass, and neither they or I want that.

I said yes, but technically, it was my dorm room window. I'm terrified of birds, so it was not pleasant!

Not my house and not a bird, but I once had a bat fly into a cabin that I was occupying. He/she got stuck between two cot frames and flapped around for a while before he/she found his/her way out. It was at night, so I didn't worry about rabies.

Yes, this happens a few times a year. It startles me every time.

Funny you should mention this. I was awakened one morning last week to a banging on the back door. Turns out it was a Robin trying to fight with his reflection in the window. Kept doing it for days. Finally had to tape cardboard to the window outside to stop him from seeing himself.

I had that happen with a bird too! My house at the time was in the woods on a dirt road and I don't know if the bird saw light, or sky, or itself. The cat would sit and watch this bird for 20-30 minutes .. never swatted at the glass. Strange!

I guess this Robin made a claim to my back yard and saw his reflection as a challenger to his territory. I just wanted him to stop waking me up!

No, but my parents had an enclosed backyard patio that a sparrow flew into. He was frantically flying around looking for the way out, and their little dog was going nuts chasing him. Eventually the bird got out before the dog died of exhaustion.

Lol no, the bird finally went out. The dog would have chased him forever. His instincts took over.

All the time. You hear a huge bang into the glass and you're like these birds, man. So confused.

I actually go to an all girls private school. Most of us were screaming and running away, but of course plenty of girls threw stuff at it to try to get it out.
