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.
