There are lots of birds living on the trees around my house. They sometimes find some holes in the netting protecting my fruit trees and end up being stuck in that area. So I end up catching and releasing them. Don’t ask me how I do it, I just have some magic powers I guess. I’ve done it so many times that they probably know me well by now. I am their human mum.
But this time, one found its way down the chimney and into our fire place. Mind you, it’s summer here so the fire place is off. Anyway, I got the poor little thing out, back in the garden. I try to do it as quick as possible to reduce the stress for the bird. I let Julia hold it for a very brief moment. Holding a bird is the most precious moment, and so I am sharing it with you.
