Doug and I were hanging out in the backyard doing some chores, but mostly relaxing when we heard a bird hit our carriage house window. This is not an uncommon occurrence; birds are frequently hitting the windows on the garage side or getting stuck in the second story room. He’s always rescuing our feathered friends. 🙂
We went to investigate to see if the bird was OK; praying that it wasn’t dead. Thankfully it wasn’t, but it was badly stunned. Doug scooped up the little female yellow warbler and kept her protected until she regained her senses.
It took several minutes for her to get back her strength. But when she did, off she went. It was such a rare opportunity to see such a tiny bird up close and personal; truly a treat and sooo cute!
