Coolock:  How do you know an Owl has hit your window? The force of the impact knocks the powdery residue between its feathers and leaves a silhouette on the glass - see photo sent in by Brian Conlan.  Apparently the same thing happened two weeks previously at the rear window of his house.   Is the Owl determined to enter the house?  No, the windows are just too clean! and the reflection of the sky and vegetation are mirrored in the glass and the Owl sees it as being outdoors ....
