Goodness. It’s been 8 months since I stopped in to blog. Lots of life happening. For now, I will start back with a cute post about a baby bird.
We had a storm blow through yesterday evening that had some fierce straight wind in it. Lots of branches and broken trees around town. In our yard, I noticed a small nest upside down on the front lawn. I turned it right side up and found its baby inhabitant clinging to the inside of the nest. It’s a Western kingbird.
I wasn’t sure what I was going to do, but as I was standing there pondering the situation I saw my plant stand. I took it, set an empty flower pot in it and stuck it in my yard underneath one of the trees I thought it may have fallen from. Then I filled the pot with small branches and leaves and set the nest and baby bird inside. I picked up a couple more leafy branches that came down in the storm and gave it a little covering over the top, but not so much that it couldn’t be seen by its parents, whom I was hoping would find it and continue to care for it. I left it alone for the night with fingers crossed.
