I seem to get a lot of injured birds here. It's always sad at first but I try to feel happy that they have found me. My feeding area is safe and secluded. I offer lot's of different seed, food, nuts and water. It's a safe haven of sorts, where they can eat and rest, out of harms way!!
This house finch has been coming for a long time...
he is tiny and rarely opens his eyes.
This male goldfinch started coming this summer,
he would stay for hours.
He was not able to use his right leg!!
and his left eye is always closed!!
Another house finch, both eyes are injured,
they have looked this way for as long as he's been coming!!
He is able to fly. When he comes to visit,
he usually sits right in the feeders and the other birds never chase him.
I see this Blue Jay every day, his right leg is injured!!
This little guy came yesterday.
He sat in this feeder all day, when he tried to fly off, he couldn't.
I went outside and put some seed on the deck and a small dish filled with water.
He enjoyed it after I went in and then...
I saw him in the hydrangea bush under the office window,
he seemed better.
Good thing the hubs is my "boss", I'm not getting squat done,
and I don't think he cares!!
