more bird stuff

Since I last wrote I have saved two more birds. Yes. It is a big bird rescuing day here. Apparently. The last two were caught by Pumpkin. Both appeared to be unhurt. The first was a gold finch. She put it down and when I walked over to her she ran away. She always does. She doesn't want to be caught or made to come inside. I reached out and touched the bird lightly and it opened its eyes and flew up to a tree.

Later I was in the house for a moment and heard a bunch of squawking outside. I looked out and saw blue jays swooping and yelling and being not happy. I also saw Pumpking running across the yard, bird in her mouth. It, too, was squawking. So I followed her. She put it down, I scooped it up. It's perfect. Not a scratch on it. But it's a baby. Not flying yet. We couldn't find the nest. The parents are easy enough to find but I don't know if they could take it anywhere. So it doesn't seem like a very good idea to just put it down somewhere. Kind of like putting out the helpless, tasty birdie buffet. So now it's in my bathroom in the box with the other one, which I now know is not a blue jay. I don't know what it is, but it's not a jay.
