The little bird was in shock when we peeked into the box. He wasn't moving and we weren't sure if he was going to make it.
|The man tried to make the box nice by |
putting some leaves in the bottom.
A few hours later, I was getting ready to leave so I went to grab his box, but he wasn't in it! We started searching around on the floor for him, when someone discovered him perched on a picture.
|I love that it's a picture of a tiger|
crouching, ready to pounce!
As we tried to catch him, we realized that he had no trouble flying. This was a good sign. He also cawed at us. Another good sign.
Once back in the box, I was sent home with the bird, some pellets and instructions to feed him and release him.
|Punk Rock with his food.|
We left him in the box, with the pellets soaked in water, overnight to give him a chance to eat and calm down.
This morning we awoke to Punk Rock's calls. He was feeling better and ready to get out.
|Punk Rock is getting ready to take off!|
|Punk Rock is released into the world.|
**Note** If you see a young bird on the ground, it's best to leave it there so the family can take care of it. Most birds do not have a sense of smell so you can also put it back in the nest if you can reach it. But it's not advisable to try and raise a wild animal on your own.
