Yesterday morning Joel and I got up to say good-bye to the family we have been staying with. *They are heading to the east side of Canada for the summer to visit supporting churches, while we stay and take care of the responsibilities at the church* Anyway, just before they took off they noticed a tiny little bird clinging to the side of their trailer. They were able to pick him up and we all spent a few minutes holding him. The little guy must have been in the middle of some flying lessons with his mommy and got a little off course... so we decided to call him Drop-Out.
It had been raining hard all morning so Joel and I brought him inside and took care of him. He was so sweet. I was able to feed him some water drops from my fingers. He must have heard birds outside because he started chirping away! .. so precious.
** he took flight in the house! **
After about an hour with him, *and the rain at a pause* we decided to stand outside with him and see if he would get any inspiration from the other birds to fly away. Sure enough, our little Drop-Out decided to return to his flying lessons. And all the other birds flew out after him.
We miss our little friend
