I am putting this back. I was worried what people will think of me if they read it. Now I am aware, I do not care what they think. It something that affect me. If that is bad thing, then is ok.

When I was at trainig center this morning, a lady come in and say there is lost baby bird outside. A friend and I go out, and there is small baby bird crying on ground, and no other bird around. He is trying fly, and he too small. So we watch some, from inside door, to see if any other growup bird come back to him, to help him. And nothing happen, no other bird come. So finaly, we get him into box, and get him some water with the drop thing. Leosha talk with someone, and they tell us what we can get to feed him, to help him to grow enough to be healthy and go back away.

He is in box right now by me, talking so loud at me for such small bird. Even being he is small, and he not have his parent birds here, he seem strong and like he have loud spirit of him. I think he is going to be good. I want see him get to be big and be able fly away to his life. Because I know his life, it is not in box beside me, eating bird mush and water from dropper thing from me and Leshka while his dog watch us and want to play with it. His life is supose to be life of bird, flying in sky and sleeping in tree.

His life and my life, our lives, they are together right now. But they not supose to be. But, yes, I guess they are supose to be, because we are here, me on the bed and him in his box talking to me. Two life that don't seem they are meant to be sharing place together, and here we are. Him talking. Me typing.

I want him be ok. He is only little bird. It is not like saving life of person, or doing something wonderful to save world. It is only little bird. But I want see him grow strong to fly away of us sometime. Because maybe day I see him do that, maybe it is day I can believe in the 'wings' I have to.

And I wanted to add, here at end. We take him in his box back to training center next day. And after few minutes, he fly right up into tree, like there is never anything wrong with him. Was good feeling to see it.

Almost poetic, certainly allegorical.

Spread your wings, Andrei, get ready to fly.

You make this sound so wonderful, and it is, you have saved the life of this little bird, he speak to you, and he say thank you for looking after me, he is a life, every life of every living thing is worth so much, he will remember you, and how you look after him.

When I was a boy I walked along the beach looking for birds tied in netting, I remember seeing one, on a summers' day tied up, I tried everything to free him and I could not do it, I saw a man some way away, and I ask him if he had a knife, he looked at me funny, then I said I wanted to free this bird, he didn't have a knife, but he had something I could use to free the bird.

I freed him and let him fly, as I threw him into the sky, I felt so proud to have given him his freedom to live, he would probably have broken his leg trying to get free, but you know, I was only a small boy with such a big bird, he could bite, but he knew I wanted to help.

It made me feel so good, just when I needed it, the man didn't understand.

I went back so many times to free the birds caught in this netting, and each time it made me so feel good

thanks for sharing

Really, their is no such thing as "just a bird." It may only be a bird, but it is a living, breathing creature. It shows how kind you are by caring for the bird so it could grow strong. Bravo, my brother, bravo!

Update:

Marvin (the bird) is still 'hanging out' in his tree and seems fine!


(Edited to clarify: as we never spray painted or otherwise vandalised this bird, we really have no way to know it is the same one! But he is about same size, and same kind of bird, in the same tree, so we assume! ;\) )
