Pigeon attack...

I was sitting at my desk last week when I heard a loud thud. I turned around but there was nothing unusual out my window, which if you recall looks onto a courtyard. I assumed that there were workers on the roof above my office and thought nothing more of it.

The next day I entered my office and as I walked around the desk to get to my chair I noticed something on the window. It looked like this. Look VERY closely.

Still can't tell what it is? Here is a view of my window from across the courtyard.

Yep, it was a pigeon strike. You can't tell from the picture, but the impression left on my window has the detail of an x-ray, showing individual feathers and details of the beak. It obviously wasn't even slowing down when it hit the window. I assume it has shuffled of the mortal coil, is not pining for the fjords and that it is an ex-pigeon.

I had the same thing happen about 10 years ago in this building. The imprint lasted until they washed the windows about 6 months later. I could actually see the eyelids in the impression!!!
