A change of pace...


Well hello little bird! My neighbor appeared yesterday at the retreat with this little fellow. One of the neighborhood cats brought it to her - completely unhurt. The little critter is almost ready to fly, but is not up to feeding himself. We have no idea where the cat found him. The redwing moms in my backyard totally ignored the little one. Feeding is not a problem as milady had a formula food and experience in feeding baby birds. Our neighbor was also experienced in feeding. I think she willbe bringing the little fellow to a nearby bird rehabbing center within a few days.

Poor little birdie!
I hope the shock of all his new experiences doesn't do him in!

With the horrid scenes of how humans have abused, maimed and killed birds/wildlife in the Gulf - it is a pleasure to come here and see the respect, care and help you offer all these little critters.

Thank you for what you do.

Wonderful posts Rusty. Love where the robin has made her nest on the light. That raccoon has such a cute face but I know they can be a great pest to some people but I do not see how anyone can harm them.

I hope this chick survives as they can be most difficult to raise.

Quite the miracle, this little fellow was completely unharmed by the cat that brought him home. Nor was it showing any signs of shock, and continues to do well.

So glad the little guy ended up in good hands. Let us know of his progress if you can.

Thats good news Rusty. Someone brought me two Barn Owls which had eaten poisoned mice about a year ago and I was pleased that I was able to nurse them back to health too and set them free.
