The things that go on around here... while filing waters this little munchkin ran up to me and I best down to inspect it. It came closer and when I reached out and touched it, it got scared, screeched and ran. Right into the grip of both dogs. Thankfully Stella stopped chasing it when I told her to and rumely caught it in his big paws and then looked at me. I scooped it up and made sure it was OK. Still mostly bald and pokey so definitely not a fledgling. I searched the yard of trees for nests that could have been it's and it seemed two birds followed me chirping the entire time. I found a nest that was vacant and I got the ladder. I placed him up inside this vacant nest where at least he will be safe and mom and dad will be able to care for him still. I am so thankful for the wildlife rehab training I've had.
The stories on this blog are actual events that I hope you can get as good of a laugh from as I have.
