Baby Bluejay Rescue Mission

On Sunday afternoon, I let the dogs out to do their business.  For some reason, I walked out with them.

All of a sudden, I noticed the dogs going after some sort of critter.  I stepped out of the porch to take a closer look, and that’s when I saw this little guy…

It took me awhile to get the dogs away from the baby bird.

I called the Mr. outside to help me.  He figured that the little guy had fallen out of a nest.

We hunted around the yard for a nest but couldn’t find anything; however, the Mr. found a couple of nests in a tree in the yard of the neighbor who lives behind us.

The nests were too far up to reach with a ladder.

After thinking about what to do, I finally decided to grab a towel, snatch the bird, and carry him to the fence.

I had seen that he could flap his wings a bit, so I thought he could fly a little.

I gently dropped him over the fence, saying a small prayer as I did so.

I hope his mama finds him so she can care for him until he’s old enough to take care of himself.
