Clean windows?

I have a problem that I never thought would be mine.
My windows are too clean. 
It's like the commercial on tv, bugs and birds bounce off of it all the time.
The other day, this poor bird, hit it so hard, it left feathers from its little head ON the window.

The sweet little bird was lying on its back, for the longest time, and I mean a long time.  
We went outside and tried to decide what to do to help the little being.  
We could see it was still breathing.  So we decided to pick it up gently in a kitchen towel and move it to a safer spot.  The second we placed the towel over it, it started to call out, then righted itself. 

Here's the towel being removed.

It took a few more minutes to let the stars circling it's little head clear.

Then flew off a bit unsteady, but it flew off into the trees all the same.
We all breathed a sigh of relief.
Share the day.

You can actually see that the feathers are thinner on the top of its head! (c;

I know right? It's like a little bald spot, poor sweet little creature. The feathers on the window were so delicate. Thanks for visiting!
