A Wounded Feathered Friend

This week a little sparrow hit our picture window. We heard the smack and looked out to see him sprawled out on the heat pump. Abel rescued him and we brought him inside. He was placed inside a wire cage in hopes that he was just stunned and with a little time would recover. He did. Within the hour he was hopping around so we released him outdoors. He flew to a nearby tree and stayed there a long time. Eventually he was gone. We checked around the base of the tree to make sure he didn't keel over and die and he was not there. So we think we helped restore him to health. Otherwise, he probably would have been dinner for one of our cats.

Looks like a white-throated sparrow. How cool.

This is SUCH an improvement from the s-s-s-s-nakes. (HA !)

God Bless.

How embarressing. After commenting to you in the car the other day about how often I check your blog, I then got on and discovered how many times you'd posted since I had been on!! So, apparently, I don't check as often as I claimed! :) We had so much fun with you guys!! See you again soon!
