Look what we found.. oh yeah, A week ago tomorrow Earl decided it was time to chop away at Hotel Munday; our palm tree in the front yard. We knew birds were nesting there and have been for months. We have seen a variety of birds from the curved bill, to doves to sparrows and grackles and humming birds in that tree. Of course we don't know what nests are what other than the doves because we could actually see them.
Anyway, after he chopped away at the dead fronds he decided to pull out the other dead stuff and clean it up a big. While cleaning up his mess from the ground he found Pitiful. Of course the nest was gone and no idea where it was anyway.. so we left him laying out on the rocks on the ground while we went for a walk and then I could not stand it any longer.. his little chest was just heaving and of course he was crying pitifully. We thought he would pass away every day but we are now on day 6 and he is still with us. We started with just giving him a little fresh squeezed oj and water but then I got the crazy idea of boiling bird seed to soften it and grind it up in the blender - since then have added grit and dried up worms I found at pet store. oh yummy. He sleeps nearly all the time but eats about a mouthful or two every hour or two. He never cries at night and sleeps right through. He is growing though and starting to look more like a bird. It has a broken leg from falling on the rocks but even it is getting stronger just from all the sleep and tlc I am guessing.
