A Bird in the Hand....

...is not worth 2 in the bush in my opinion...
This poor little robin knocked himself senseless after crashing into one of the windows. I went out to find him flat on his back & looking all around in a daze. I had to pick him up because the neighbor's cat had noticed the bird laying there & was stalking it. After a few minutes the poor robin shook it off & flew from my hand up into the nearest tree...seemingly unharmed.

I took a picture of it to show the kids & they wanted to hold a bird too, but I told them it wasn't 'that kind of bird' ...& wild birds are happiest up in the trees where they belong.
:o)

Aaaw how cute. Well done for saving it before the cat went for it. That was one lucky little feathered friend you had there. x
