Unexpected Visitor


This little guy flew into my garage Tuesday afternoon when I came home from work. I left the garage open all evening and I thought he flew out. Come Thursday morning, I heard a chirp-chirp from behind the charcoal bags. I pulled one aside and there was this little brother, calling out for his mama.

It was raining like mad yesterday morning, so I couldn't let him out. Once the rain let up, his mama flew into the garage and started feeding him. He was still too afraid to follow her out though. After several hours, I finally got him out of the garage and into the bushes. When I came home this morning there was no sign of him. I hope he made it back to the nest before the rain started again. I hope he enjoyed his overnight stay in our garage at least!

PS: Today is my two year wedding anniversary. My husband is taking me on a surprise trip for the weekend. I hope the automatic posting works!

We had a little bird in the garage, too, but it died...sad.

Congrats on your anniversary. Have a great trip, wherever you go!

Re: Matt, the tree-trimmer...he's a really fine person and he'll trim any kind of tree...he's done our big oaks before.

Expensive, though.
