We’ve all heard the crash of a bird flying into a window, and seen the grease mark it leaves behind. However, the pigeon that flew into Stuart Milligan’s kitchen window in Dunblane, Scotland left a mark of extraordinary detail, and Milligan may decide to sell the amazing imprint as art.
The imprint includes the bird’s eye, beak, wings, and the feathers on his tummy and wings. The substance left behind from birds hitting a window is powder down which helps to preserve their feathers.
The next time a bird hits your window, it may be advisable to see if the image left behind is worthy or framing. But, in the meantime, if you have pigeons nesting on your home, you may want to pay attention.
Pigeons can be a both damaging to property and unhealthy. It is extremely important to address pigeon issues on your property. Pigeons often nest on roofs where they damage the materials to the point of a roof leak. Pigeons carry diseases such as cryptococcosis, toxoplasmosis, and salmonella. Pigeon droppings may harbor the growth of fungus which causes histoplasmosis. Other pests may live on these birds, including fleas, lice, mites, or ticks.
