Birds Again

3 Jun

Yesterday the girl brought me a young (not yet fledged, but with some feathers) grackle a robin was harassing.  We put it in the rabbit hutch for awhile.  The smart thing figured out the water bottle almost immediately.  Hearing parents, we eventually put it under the spruces close to the house in the west.  Adults were caring for it within half an hour.

Then this morning, she came home from the morning’s walk with Hawthorne with a plump naked baby bird.  Hawthorne had appeared out of the hedgerow with it in his mouth.  Fine, but wet.  And no clue where it belongs.  I think it may be a thrush.  She put it in a low Robin nest on the east side of the house.
