Blessings and Birds

I’ve lived my whole life never getting close to a wild bird and this past year I’ve held three.

I rescued a Hummer from the rafters in the shop.  It was a pretty exciting save actually.  I had to wait two days for the little guy to be tired enough for me to capture.  I hung a feeder up in the loft where I found some dead birds in the past hoping he would drink until I could figure out a way to catch him.  It finally came down to just lunging and grabbing him.  I held a heartbeat in my hands.

I’ve already written about the quail I held with the help of Scrappy cat.

A Blue Jay was the most recent little feathered blessing I’ve held.  I looked out our bedroom window to see a blue jay caught in our tree.  He was trying to feed from the suet block when the feathers on his wings got tangled in a branch.  I was able to catch him and break the twig from the tree.  My granddaughter helped me untangle the feathers from the branch to set him free.

Matthew 6:26

Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?
