I found this little guy in my front yard yesterday. I'm not sure where he came from, but I'm assumeing it was my neighbors tree. It looks like a cat probably got him or he might of broken his wing trying to fly out of the nest. He's a Grackel fledgling. The momma was around the whole time, squawking and throwing a fit whenever we would go outside. I felt bad taking him away from her but there wasn't anything she could do and I really needed to get him to a rescue. The bird in the tree is the momma.
So anyway, I was wondering if anyone else had a rescue story that is non-horse related that you felt really good about. I would love to see pictures too, if you have them.
The last picture is me when I was 12 with a sparrow I rescued. I found her in my driveway, her eyes weren't even open yet. She grew up to be kinda scraggily looking, but she followed me around like a puppy. I made the mistake of underestimating her flying ability and one day when I was cleaning her cage in the garage, she flew right out the door and I never found her. I have a soft spot for birds I guess.
