The Bird is Free

After a short overnight stay with Mrs.R and myself, The Bird was released outside this morning. I like the name, The Bird, simple yet not too easily attached to.

After making sure our feline friends had their breakfast this morning, I opened The Bird’s temporary home to make sure it was getting some food and water.  A very patient 10 minutes of dribbling water and food near The Bird’s beak and I was relatively satisfied something was eaten and drank.

Then to my surprise The Bird jumped up and flew through the kitchen and around the corner before unceremoniously flying into a mirrored door and ending up on the floor.  I quickly ran to pick it up as two of our cats quickly ran to investigate.  No harm … no fowl for the kitties either.  We waited about an hour or so more and made sure to give The Bird more food and water then outside we went …

The Bird Outside

We left The Bird near a large puddle that usually forms after a rainfall in a small quiet park area behind where we live. We saw a female robin eating and drinking nearby and felt it was the best place for The Bird to be.
