A Bird In The Hand...

Yesterday, while I was getting ready for work I heard a strange noise coming from the kitchen. That's when I found this:
You may have me now, but the joke's on you when you see what I left in your hand.

A Ground Dove. I don't know that much about birds but I could tell it's young. It came in through an open window and was freaking out a little because it felt trapped. It fluttered around until it ended up stuck in a waste basket.

Coincidentally, My post on Sprocket Ink today is about a trapped bird. Only, this is about one that got away. Click on the SI badge to the right to see what I'm talking about.

    2. I figured you would. I just happen to have a mild phobia of diseases carried by birds... Not sure where it comes from.

    3. Let's say, just asking here, someone doesn't wash there hands after holding a bird. What diseases are we talking about?

      Strictly out of curiousity (nervous chuckle)

    1. Yes, but ungrateful. The thing never even *tried* to thank me when I let it fly out the window.

  6. Hubby and I spent a very hot and sweaty hour in the garage once. No, it wasn't some kinky fetish, we were trying to capture a baby bird stuck in there, while it's parents were waiting outside going crazy.
