Dan was spraying weeds in the yard and came in to tell me he found a bird in the grass. We put on gloves and went out to check it out. It was a woodpecker that was just sitting there, we assume he must have flew into something and landed in the yard. I picked him up and cuddled him against my chest and just held him. His eyes were closed and he was shaking.
I sat on the front porch and just held him. Victoria was absolutely fascinated by the whole thing. She kept touching his tail. At one point he tried to fly and made it about 2 feet, scaring the heck out of Ms V.
We put him in the playset with a towel, my gloves and some food. He kept trying to climb up my arms but we had to go out.
Here are the dogs running around the back yard. They could smell something but could not find anything :)
When we came back from our errands he was gone. We have seen him several times since then flying around and eating from our bird feeder. :)
It was a good day :)
You just gotta wonder what it is about stray animals and us :) :)
We talk to Lexie's new owner every few days and she is doing GREAT!
We hope to get together next weekend for a play date :)
