Strange Encounter--and a happy ending!

Yesterday late afternoon I happened to look out the back door onto the patio & saw this bird curled up near the stairs.  I called to Alan & went out, knowing that our cat was out there--not knowing if he had done something to this bird ( a woodpecker as you will   see ).  He ( the cat) was a big hunter in his prime, but way past that now!

The woodpecker seemed a little stunned --we think it flew into the patio door ( large glass door) and was getting it's feet back under it.

After a few minutes , we were happy to see  it stand up & fly away!
