This morning the humidity was high giving the air a wet heavy, calm and peaceful feeling. I am excited to say I saw the green flash for the first time when the sun was rising.
As I was walking off the beach, I saw this sweet bird hanging around. Two gentlemen walked by the bird and the bird didn't move, giving me the first clue he needed help. I walked up to him, called him Buddy and asked if he needed help. He came close but didn't seem sure of my intentions. I took off my jacket to wrap him up and asked, "Do you want to go see the doctor?" He took a few steps in the opposite direction and fell down, giving me the opportunity to pick him up and swaddle him. I called a friend for a ride and off we went to the bird hospital where he was among other feathered friends and able to get treatment.
In a world where it can be easy to feel powerless, it felt really good to be helpful. Wishing my new feathered friend a speedy recovery.
