Dazed Gold Crest

This little fellow crashed into one of the school windows back in 2008. It is a male Gold Crest, Ireland’s smallest bird. You can tell it is a male from the orange (gold) feathers at the back of his crest. You will have to watch the video closely to catch a glimpse.

After his video debut he was placed in a shoe box in a warm dark room to relax and recover from his accident.  The club members fed him flies for the rest of the school day.

He made a full recovery and was released back into the school tree line that evening.  He immediately flew up into a tree and began to sing to let everyone know he was still around!

Here is a similar story from YouTube. (You may not be able to watch this video on the Irish School Broadband Service depending on your schools filter settings.)
