This poor little Sparrow flew into the back window of Neil's truck about 2 weeks ago and got stunned. At first we panicked and thought the red all over him was blood !! Turns out it was not. It's just his coloring. So once we realized he was okay, we just sat with him and held him until he was unstunned....?....LOL!! Not sure if thats a word or not, but it works, LOL !! A lot of people get a giggle at the beer can and figured the little guy was sipping and got drunk. Don't worry, the can was empty, LOL !! We checked out his wings, and legs. Nothing was broken.

He just sat on the edge of the shoebox looking at us. Then he went around to the other side and just stared at me.We went and sat the box on the car in the sunshine to see if he would fly away. It took a few more minutes of resting before Neil picked him up and the little guy flew away to the tree's with his friends. He was fine, and not injured at all. I thought the pictures were neat. It certainly shows how colorful these little guys really are. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. We enjoyed having him for a visit.

It is amazing the healing power of nature. What kind of bird is that? I looked in my bird book and can't find it. What a treat to have the little visitor.

Renae~ Too cute! Isn't that a purple finch? At first (because of the picture) I thought the little birdy had one too many Molson's... I am glad he just crashed and burned, but then he recovered. I have had some of them try to fly into our breakfast room only to end up getting a broken neck after hitting the glass. Maybe I should quit cleaning the windows? Mrs. LZ and I are doing just fine. Thanks for asking! ~ jb///

Renae: Exactly what my late Cousin (whom I miss so much) would have done! Bless you for being such a kind and good hearted person.
