a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

Saving Feathers From Fur

I heard a terrible noise! I ran to the door and could not imagine what that sound was. There was Squiggy with a baby Blue Jay with parents attacking. I yelled and Squiggy dropped the bird...no damage to the little guy.

Yelled for Andrew to get the camera, I am not leaving this baby on his own with all the dogs around, not to mention the cats.

I tried so hard to get a good picture. I wanted one with the parent encouraging the little one to come home. No luck! You cannot imagine the pictures I deleted.

I have been a devoted follower of Tina's Bird Yarns but was unable to equal her artistry in taking wonderfully amazing bird pictures.

With all the hops, flutters, and running leaps, the bird has found the way to the tree.

The climb was a success...Feathers Score One, Fur Scored Zero!

What an adventure for the little guy. We never saw our bluebirds leave the nest. I hope they didn't get eaten by the snake.

Your pictures are great of the baby bird! So glad he or she made it back to the tree safely! Nice save Gail...=)

As for house breaking a chicken......Ummm, it ain't easy....he, he. No really, Zade is living in a dog kennel in the computer room for now. He's pretty good when we let him out and doesn't make to big of a mess.

Yeah to the bird defender in your Gail. My cats happily showed me the one they caught the other day by displaying what was left by the back door. Darn cats.
