I've always wondered what checks are made after a bird strike after landing. Nobody can know where the bird(s) exactly hit, so there must be guidelines, that e.g. all engines must be checked, even though it may appear that only the cockpit window was hit. If so, how long would such a check (the repairs themselves not included) take?

the Inspection schedule for Bird strike/Bird ingestion is prepared based on the AMM,which gives detail steps to be followed during such occurances.
Normally we try to configure the position when the strike occured eg flaps down etc.Tracing the path of the impact does help too.
To add,the Bird debris needs to be extracted using a Bird strike cleaning kit,which consists of gloves,cleaning solution & transparent packets....The bird samples need to be collected & despatched to the concerned authorities at the airport that research bird activity.
Apart from the paperwork involved & records kept....If not serious should be accomplished in a few hrs.
