As regular CFZ-watchers will know, for some time Corinna has been doing a column for Animals & Men and a regular segment on On The Track... particularly about out-of-place birds and rare vagrants. There seem to be more and more bird stories from all over the world hitting the news these days so, to make room for them all - and to give them all equal and worthy coverage - she has set up this new blog to cover all things feathery and Fortean.

The birdbrain made a big impression but thankfully wasn't hurt in the ordeal
Daft: The bird flew away after making the distinctive mark
A crow got its feathers ruffled after flying into a window - and leaving an imprint of its face and beak on the glass.

Richard Kantor thought there had been an explosion in the house when he was tucking into his breakfast at about 7.30am on Thursday.

But the cause of the noise was a huge crow which had flown into a window at his house and left the distinctive mark of its body and wings.

He then saw the bird dust itself down before flying off.

His wife, Liz, aged 54, said, it wasn’t the first time birds had flown into the window.
She said their house is "some kind of flight path" which confuses birds into flying into the glass.

Perfect imprint left behind after crow crashes into window in CoventryLiz told the Coventry Telegraph : “I think our garden must be on some kind of flight path - this has happened a few times.

“I have also seen an owl and a bat fly into the pane of glass. It is all very bizarre.

“My husband was eating his breakfast and heard a big explosion.

“He ran to the back and saw the crow dusting itself down before flying off.
