a window seat

Well, when I woke up this morning the little birdie (see yesterday's post) wasn't doing very well, very lethargic and not singing. I sat outside hoping to see some clues as to where a nest was hidden nearby, but did not have any luck.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     
I called the local wild life organization and found a place that could take our little guy and get him to a place where he will be released back into his environment. This was actually more difficult than I anticipated it being, a big part of me wanted to figure out how to care for him and do it myself, and the other part of me wanted to put him in trained hands to ensure his life would be okay. 
                                                                                                                                      
So I came home from leaving him and was feeling blue, listening to the neighborhood tweeting away, wondering where he fell from. The kitties have been engrossed in birds and wind outside the window, but still I have not seen a nest. I just called where he was dropped off to check on him (they encouraged me to do so) and he is doing quite well...so when he is older he will be free again, singing outside my bedroom window (I hope )

awww poor little birdie baby :(
You did the right thing for the little guy and I know he'll be flying and well in no time! I hope he visits you when he gets better

I'm sure they'll take good care of the baby, that's the best thing you could have done. It would have definitely been hard for me too though.

I love your blog!

Ooooh, poor little thing. I know exactly how you feel though. You made the right decision. He'll be all grow'd up and flying in no time.

I'm so glad you found someone to take him - I'm on duckling alert as the momma duck's eggs in our backyard should be hatching any day now... I skeeered!!!

I'm glad you got the baby bird to someone who knows what they are doing. I'm sending positive bird thoughts too.

I wanted to let you know I received my package yesterday afternoon and I am so pleased. I posted on my Blog about it. Here's the link:

Glad to hear the little guy is doing well. And I'm sure he'll be back one day to visit to sing you and your kitties a song ;)
