Let me start by saying that this is by far the saddest post I have ever done.
In my carport there is a large hollow beam that is seasonally inhabited by birds.
They lay their nests inside and you can hear the babies chirping when they hatch.
Only this time, as I was arriving home, I was horrified by what I saw.
Warning: If you are currently eating food and/or do not
want to see pictures of a dead baby bird, stop reading now!
An undeveloped newborn baby bird had fallen from it's nest. If
you're like me, your heart probably dropped to the floor just now :(
I know these photos are heartbreaking and may be too graphic
for some... and maybe I shouldn't be showing you something so sad...
But a Life is a Life no matter how small, and all Life needs to be appreciated and loved
I felt it was important to have a funeral for
Baby Bird, so I started by writing him/her a note...
I placed my note in an empty box that I decorated...
A bejeweled (Mighty Leaf Tea Tumbler) cardboard casket
Complete with gold rhinestones and a bird sticker
Then I found a sunny spot outside, next to some pretty pink flowers, to bury the box
Dug a hole with the shovel, gently laid Birdy to rest, then covered back up again
