Tree Trips 2, Are You My Mommy?

Above our bay window, little sparrows and Java finches
 regularly build their nests.

Well, my husband found this little fledgling shortly after our cat did. He was slightly roughed up like the last one, so he figured he'd put him back under the eves. Next day, he walked up the trail and noticed the same cat with her mouth full..yet ironically, she willingly set him down beside his feet unharmed?
 I took him in he gave him to me..
I sat down, aware I was out of baby bird formula but didn't want to mess with worms..so I told this little guy I'd help him look for his parents! Strange..he was healthy and completely trusting.

What I didn't realize was that there are two nests side by side (sparrows to the left and java finches to the right)

 
So, we stepped out and began to wander around together..
We noticed all the raindrops clinging and decided the fern appeared quite
happy with the flowers?

Still, we gazed up
But the lovely Blue Marble with her young sprout shook her head-
By then, we were ready to change our tone..
Still holding him in my palms I lifted him higher. He gave a few chirps alerting his parents who suddenly appeared at that moment! With a whoosh, I flung him in the air and whispered he was brave. He flew up to some brush and dangled from the nearest branch while mom and dad swooped down to his rescue!! Satisfied, I grabbed kitty and promptly walked back into the house.

What a wonderful story and pictures to go with it!! I can't believe baby remained unscathed despite two encounters with kitty!! And you actually took him to his parents!

I like the effect of the photo seeing a bird flying towards you.

It looked like the parent was flying out from the heaven.

So nice.

Good to hear a happy ending to that story.

Your photos and their different treatments are a fun trip through your wet, warm world. I especially like the raindrop photo. Plants like the big philodendron only grow as house plants around here.

What a marvellous story and so miraculous that the baby bird survives. Maybe she is really a cat in disguise :-)
