Wednesday again - and time for "Outdoor Wednesday" hosted by Susan @ http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com. Few weeks ago I found a baby bird in my courtyard and could tell immediately it's neck was broken. :( I left it alone, knowing there was nothing I could do for it. Don't know if it fell or got pushed out of the nest. My Daughter came over later that day and put on a paper towel and held it for a while, then put it down next to a flower pot. It would try to move, but could not lift it's head up. The next morning, it was a few inches off of the paper towel and had died. Well - a few days ago one of it's sibblings paid me a visit. It stayed on the back of the chair for a long time.
I thought it had gone off and when I went back outside, it had hopped down on a pot of petunias.
The parents were very unhappy that I was out there taking pictures and to close to their "toddler". I know one thing - They should have put a diaper on that "kid" . :-D Don't know what they were feeding it, but it left a mess all over the chair, table and patio, and I had to hose everything off the next day after it traveled on.
That is where they were raised - Not a good picture. You can barely see the nest. The limbs overhang my courtyard.
This is my contribution to "Outdoor Wednesday". If you have not already, go on over to visit Susan to see what she and the other participants have to share today.
Hope you are having a great week
