(*updates below...including video and final update)
this time HARD.
I got him in a box and wrapped up in a towel. He's such a little guy too. This just rips out my heart. I pray that he's going to make it.
I will update in a bit.
Here is a picture of the sweetheart. Not keeping his eyes open very much. I'm going to stay with him for a bit and keep him awake. Please say a little prayer? I know that might sound hokey to ask for prayers for a little bird of nature but we are all God's creatures and have a will and desire to be on this earth. And this guy is struggling but he's able to move his head so he may have a chance. I think pretty much everyone who reads and comments on here is an animal/nature lover so I don't think it's too crazy to ask for prayers. Plus I feel partly responsible for renting this house with all these blasted windows so I am going to do whatever it takes to not lose another innocent soul.
I took some pics of the stupid windows that the birds keep smashing into.
this is the main one in the living room where the majority of casualties occur:
this one is in the study area and thankfully there is covering on the lower part which helps a lot:
this is at the front of the house where we've had a couple birds hit but only lost one (as far as we know):
Wrigs is concerned and keeps watch over the little guy.
I really think a career in nursing is in his future. He is being very calm and quiet, as he looks after little bird. (and yes, those are 2 more sun lights in the background.)
Litte Bird has perked up and is looking aroud!
Having some issues uploading to youtube but here is some video from 11am:
He wasn't ready to go. He rested for a bit and then as he was sitting on my hand he hopped up my arm and then flew to the ledge:
...where he sat for a bit. Still not quite ready to go.
I headed inside to figure out how to stick on these static cling things because the LAST thing I wanted was for this poor guy to fly right back into a window. The cling things on these tall windows are a disaster, one is stuck on the bottom ledge of the top window so I'll have to wait for Tom to get home and bring in the ladder. And the other I sort of threw half ass on the front window (because I was literally hanging over the balcony, one tip toe touching the ground) but it didn't end up in a great place so we'll try to fix that with the ladder too.
After dealing with that I went back to check on little bird and he was chirping! Such a precious little squeak chirp. The camera was inside and I thought about rushing back to get it but it was too late because after a few chirps he hopped off the ledge and off he flew! He chirped as he soared through the trees and he looked strong and steady. This has made my day!
Thank you to everyone who kept this little guy in your thoughts and prayers. I am grateful for your kindness.
And now, I'm off to finally START my day!
