A little drama and peace restored.

Quiet day at home. Not sure what I was doing just at that time, but I heard a soft thud and Chloe called, “Morgan, NO, Mom, emergency!”

A little yellow warbler had hit the window and landed panting on the patio. Morgan was up like a shot.

While Chloe blocked Morgan away from the bird, I picked him up and took him to the garage and put him on a soft blanket into the cat carrier to recover in the cool and dark.

And got on with a bit of gardening.


Twenty minutes later, the little guy was recovered enough to fly to a garden tree and he sat there for a very long time, and finally flew away.

Morgan was suitably unimpressed by this, and, especially since she…or Milo…got a small rat in the night…


…but came to terms with it and cuddled up on the little table in the living room and went to sleep.

Peace restored.

      Lol, only I shouldn’t be laughing. 😀 Bet the sparrow gave them the middle claw.

    You are a wonderful photographer. I know…I’ve said this before.

    So happy that the sweet little bird recovered. Morgan looked content taking that nap after all the excitement had died down.
