Poor Little Birdie (aka: a good reason not to clean)

As I was uploading my card for the daily challenge, I heard a very loud thud on my back door. I've heard this noise before & knew what it was, but never this loud before. I looked out to find a poor little bird completely dazed on its back. It was blinking its eyes and moving its legs a bit so I left it alone to recover. I figured why add the trauma of a giant trying to "help". I checked on it a little bit ago and it's sitting up. Looks like he's got a doozie of a headache. And now, a bit later he's still in that spot but looking around and chirping. Hopefully he's gonna be ok. Guess I should relax about cleaning my back door and maybe put some window clings up so birds stop getting knocked out.

Any birders out there who can tell me about this beauty?

Sorry I can't help with the injured birdie - but I have one nesting in the gutter above my front door - am waiting for animal control to remove it.
