Journal - Little Birdy Rescue




We were coming down the stairs one day when we saw this little thing huddled in fright in our corridor. Of course - we did the correct thing to replace this little birdie in our garden. However,  she tried to fly away and landed stuck in our pool instead.  She was at the verge of drowning when Sean gallantly jumped into the pool and rescued her.
Hence- we decided to buy a little cage and keep her for a day till she recuperates enough to fly off. I have to say that feeding her was no fun.  I had to stuff MAGGOTS - yes - maggots into her mouth... That was a major ewwwww... But I had to feed her cos I didnt want her to die and she refused to eat any seeds.
After spending one precious night with us - I noticed that she was trying to fly again.  And hence - I let her out on the windowsill and she flew to the neighbouring tree.  She was so happy and I was glad that she could fly again.  Little birdie - I really hope you can find your own mummy soon.... And thank you for spending 1 day with us and giving my kids such joy - was such a special gift to us...

What a coincidence! A little green birdie also flew into Jonathan's room 2 days ago but I didn't dare to catch it, unlike brave Sean! It was stuck behind the window. I kept telling it to look left where the opening was and it did. Then it slowly inched its way to the window and flew off. Too bad I didn't take any pics. Wish I had! Tks for sharing!
