5:45 pm, Friday, 24 June:
The instructor was giving us C++ code demonstrations when all of a sudden, I heard a loud, rumbling noice. A classmate behind me was saying to the instructor that it was a bird. About 20 minutes later on our break, I walked outside and sure enough, I saw the bird laying dead on the ground. It appeared that its neck was bent up. What makes me wonder though, is….how in the heck could that bird not see that window right there? The sun was reflecting off of that window, which must have made that window appear of a reflection of the tree behind it. The bird must have mistook that window for a tree, which is common, I suppose. I consider it lucky that it happened while I was at class. Actually, what is even more lucky is that another classmate was grabbing a skittles from the vending machine and there happened to be another one already in the slot! I couldn’t suppose the intense shaking that the bird made had anything to do with that but you’ll never know. It’s tragic, and I feel sorry for the bird, but it is by far, the most impressive thing I have to blog about.
As far as I can tell you, I got no idea what kind of bird it was. I know for a fact that it wasn’t a robin but it was a small, whitish kind of bird, probably about 3 inches. Maybe it was a sparrow. Are sparrows white? I’m not sure. I want to try to be as descriptive as possible. If anyone knows the answer, please let me know.
