Nuthatch escaping (2)

A lady got some cardboard from the supermarket and tried to scoop up the nuthatch and take it over to a nearby tree pit where it would at least be out of the flow of pedestrian traffic while we pondered what to do about it.The bird had other ideas, and flew onto her arm, and from there up on the store's sign, and then to the tree.So I guess it rescued itself.My guess was it ran into the store window while coming in for a a landing on the reflection of a tree, and was luckily only stunned; and when I arrived it was gathering its wits.
