Here's another article from my old hometown newspaper.. they must be on an outdoors story kick. Rescue wildlife cautiously.

What a coincidence - a couple of days ago I walked around a corner on the pathway in my garden and almost stepped on a little brown mound.

At first I thought it was a "calling card" left by a critter, but it moved. It was a baby bird, quivering and trying to flap it's stubby little wings. I backed up and crouched down to see what it would do, and a moment later Mama Cardinal swooped down and flew past the baby and up into a Leyland cypress tree.

Little baby chirped and hopped toward the cypress, then fluttered it's little winglets until it got airborne and flew unsteadily up into the cypress right where Mama had gone. muggs

This reminds me -


I have somewhat of a dilemma. I have a hanging plant, and I am moving. Problem is, a Mourning Dove has decided to make her home in it. I hate to move her (well she won't go with it, but she'll lose her nest), but I hate to leave the plant. Any ideas?

Maybe you can ask the new owners to keep the plant just until the dove leaves?? We did that when we first moved into this house....except it was a cat instead of a bird.

If the bird doesn't have any babies or eggs in the nest, you can probably just move it. She will make a new nest quickly.

I checked today - there are 2 eggs! I'm hoping my landlord will let me keep the plant there til the chicks fly away, but she's kind of a jerk.
