I had gone outdoors this morning to do all my chores and I was pulling grass for the guinea pigs when I heard a noise that sounded like a helicopter. I stopped and listened and it got quieter, so I went back to pulling grass from under an apple tree. I heard it again -3 times it did that and then it got quiet. I leaned down and pulled more grass and weeds and all of a sudden I heard A VERY LOUD noise - like a small bomb and then everything got deathly quiet. It scared me because I was afraid that it had crashed -what -ever It was????
But I was tired and took the grass to the piggies and not hearing anything I gave up on it. So, I still have NO idea what I was hearing. I came on in and took a bath and fixed my lunch and then Came in to sew. I had laid out a shirt front to embroider and picked out a design and I heard another noise so I went to the living room to peek out the door and this was what I saw:
You know there always has to be something quirky with me. I had finished the shirt and was downloading the pictures for my blog and my modem stopped working . It has been doing that at least once a day here lately - so I went back into the kitchen to turn it off and turn it back on and was in the process of that when I heard another noise(what is it with me today -???)I turned around to look at the back door and it looked like a big moth hitting the glass door?? I looked closer and discovered it was a young bird and it was just banging its little body on the door and fall and back on the door and fall. It scared me to watch it fall because my kitty was somewhere and I did not want him to have bird for a snack in the dark . DH had screwed this door closed during the winter and I did not think I would be able to open it - but I got lucky he had taken the screws out. I gave a big yank and the little bird fell back to earth and just as I reached for it - it took off one more time and came shooting in the house. I ran the cats into sewing room and grabbed a towel and went back to help DH as he was keeping an eye on the little fast flying jet with wings. We eventually headed it into a small room and with both of us corralling it finally DH managed to cover it with his towel. I took it and went back into the living room to take a look at our little visitor. It was so small and brown with a white band around its neck. That white was what made me think it was a moth at first. I looked the little one over good and it was not hurt , just scared. I sat and held it for a few minutes trying to figure out what to do with it??? Finally I decided to put it in a small birdcage because it would be unable to fly in the dark . In the morning I plan to release it , if it is still ok. At least I will be able to sleep tonight and not worry about it. :)
See, I always have so many adventures? LOL
Good night to one and all!
