Around dusk, dinnertime, usually a pretty calm time in my house. Not last night! Screaching from outside startled me from my glass du jour and I knew it before I saw - the cats (Calvin & Hobbes) caught a bird. They do it in pairs - they are nothing if not a team of seasoned predators. I bolted, spilled my wine, and headed for the screaching sound of parent birds. The brave wrens were diving bombing the cats, then me. Im just glad no one has it on youTube yet.
|Its always the quiet ones|
This morning, cats needed to go out. So, up at 5am, I checked everywhere for the baby. Can't find him - parents are still there, chirping alarmingly - so I know he's somewhere close by. As do Calvin & Hobbes. I figure I may have to take him, if I find him again - put this old vintage cage to use and nurse him for another week or so until his feathers come in and he is strong enough to fly on his own. I have had to do this a few times now and am getting quite good at feeding birdies canned dog food on toothpicks every 30 minutes. Its the other end that freaks me out. aaahh Spring:)
