The Sparrowhawk that nearly killed himself

On St. Patricks day 2108 we heard a loud bang against the kitchen window. Looking outside it appeared to be a Sparrowhawk that had tried some interesting manoeuvring. He was lying unconscious and in shock. Because he obviously did not break his neck and had no visible injuries, we decided to wrap him up warmly and take him out of the wind.
When he woke up he might have had another shock, because one of the cats was looking at him. Fortunately Karen acted fast and took Indy away. He slowly regained consciousness and about 20 minutes after his encounter with the kitchen window, he flew of.
