The tiny beauty flew into our 30-foot-tall barn & became fixated on a high window. He kept flying into it, expecting to get through the glass & back outside.
So we opened the big overhead doors & left him alone for 30 minutes, hoping he’d find the other exits.
Nope. He kept throwing himself against the same glass.
So I extended the 20-foot ladder and climbed up to the top rung.
I gently scooted him off the window sill with a stick, where he was resting, exhausted. He immediately started flailing the glass. He was relentless with his single-mindedness.
Finally, I shut all the doors, cupped him in my hands & released him outside. He flew off like a dart.
The bird never realized there were many other easier ways to escape besides that high window.
And that is why hard work is a big mistake. The more we fixate and flail, the less we see other opportunities.
