Awww Monday October 7, 2013


A few days ago we heard that familiar "bash" and "thud"
 while we were sitting outside and Russell picked up this cute
little male Goldfinch off the deck and held it in his hands 
so it might recover from the shock of hitting a window. 
After about 10 or so minutes he opened up his hands 
and the little guy just sat there for awhile looking around 
and finally flew away! Such a pretty little bird.
If we hadn't heard it hit the window the chances are it 
would have died.



As you can see the little Goldfinch left a calling card 
on Russell's hand. Was that a "Thank you" ?

awww how sweet :D. We had a bird smack into the side of our house once but then it was a falcon and it had a pigeon in its grip. It had hit the house while catching it.

Wonderful that the bird was given back his life. And he left what he had to give as a thank you. :)

His warm hands probably kept the birdie from shock. Great way to begin the fall, saving a little life.

Nice ending! I found a bird with yellow feathers on his throat last week on my front door mat. Don't know if he flew into the door or just landed and died.... :(

Stephen Hayes said...

Yes, that is a thank you present the birdie gave for saving its life. Amazing that he could fly away after being out cold for ten minutes.

AWWW how sweet. That always makes me sad when a bird flies into a window. I am so happy that the little guy was OK.
