Today I got a phone call from a friend saying she had rescued a baby bird who was being tossed around by a cat. The bird was fine, but his wing was injured and he could not fly. The poor thing would have been helpless against predators...so we decided we needed to take him somewhere to get fixed up. My friend brought the bird over in a shoe box, and we took him to PAWS where he could get some help before being released back into the wild. We thought he needed a name before we let him go, so we came up with Stanley.
We aren't all animal lovers, but it is hard to see a little creature so helpless and not do something about it. Thanks to my friend and PAWS, Stanley will get to fly around with his birdie friends some more. What a great way to start my day :)
