Hope everyone has had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!  Ours has been filled with the zoo:

a VERY special 16-year-old's VERY belated birthday celebration:


and baby birds!  Well, really only one baby bird.
This is Buddy:

Caylin found Buddy on the ground back out behind our house- in the tree line.  He's a baby Blue Jay and his nest is too high up for any of us to reach, even with a ladder.  We believe that there is a problem with one of his legs- especially since he fell from so high up.  Caylin has been feeding him worms and slugs, and since we couldn't get him back in his nest, he is in a basket lined with an old towel, hanging from a branch in hopes that his momma will find him.  If we don't see any movement from momma or pappa blue jay, we'll be calling the WHS Wildlife Rehabilitation Center tomorrow.


  1. Leave it to Caylin to find the baby blue jay...she definitely has a calling...she'll be a vet some day.

  2. Tell me about it! Tommy wants to be one too now.
    PS- Buddy died during the night... poor thing. :-(
