**To begin with- nothing happened to Jay, he’s fine completely! I realized when I looked at the first draft title (big fright by a little guy) that people would think I was talking about Jay so I changed “guy” to “bird” and realized that too wouldn’t distinguish it any better. So instead of spending tons of time trying to figure out a different title I am just going to add the disclaimer upfront.**
This morning while playing with Jay and following his little-crawling-self around the house I heard a huge thud on come from the kitchen. It sounded like when the cats chase lizards on the other side of windows so I was curious to see what they had found. However, what I saw instead was no kitties in the kitchen at but a little bird flapping upside down on the ground outside like a maniac. This of course freaked me out and I went to get my phone to message Jamie asking what to do. By the time I sent the first message he had flipped himself over and squished himself up close to the window so I couldn’t see him very well unless I went outside (which I wasn’t going to do with a dog and a baby at my feet). So I just sent another message to Jamie. Well Blackberry messenger was especially slow this morning and he didn’t get any of the messages until 30 minutes later when I sent another after putting Jay to bed and hoping that the bird would fly away on his own (he hadn’t). At this point Jamie got the messages and gave me a call- bless him because I was really starting to worry and freak out. While talking to Jamie I went outside to get a picture of it to send to him and when I did this the little guy kind of came out of his daze and started to look around frantically. Before I could snap a picture he took off and landed in the closest tree. He was flying pretty shakily and landed low in a tree right above our neighbors cat (I scared the kitty away) so I figured he wasn’t all the way back to normal. So I went back inside to grab a big camera (not my phone) to snap a few pictures and wait until he flew again. He did and all is well with the world again.
Here’s a picture of my little trouble maker. Not sure what he is, anybody have an idea?
