A baby bird fell out of a tree. Cale picked it up and we put it in a bucket under the tree it came from. They boys all sat back to watch and keep it safe from our cats.
He cried for his mama
Until she came and fed him
Dad came too. They took turns feeding and flying over the little bird.
He had some wing feathers, but still couldn't fly. We hung the basket high in the tree while we went about our day. But he wouldn't stay. He jumped out many times. While we ate dinner under the tree he jumped and mama came to him on the ground.
She jumped and flew over him and tried to do the same. He followed her across the yard into the brush. And started to climb low trees and bushes with many branches.
Good-Bye Little Bird
