Larry

My neighbor is a beekeeper.  She goes out and removes hives from trees all the time.  I don’t mind bees in general but I”m highly allergic so no thank you.  Fortunately, if I ever have a problem with bees, I know who to call.

Poor little bee….

Recently my neighbor was removing an angry hive out of a large tree as it was being cut down.  She noticed that a nest had fallen on a nearby roof.  Two birds were in it.  One survived, sadly, the other did not.  She tried to located the mother to no avail and then, she called me.

Meet Larry.

My name is Larry Bird and I am a woodpecker.

Larry is a teeny bit bigger than Woody was when we rescued him but he still needs to be hand fed.  He’s strong though and we’re pretty sure in a few weeks he’ll be able to fly out into the wonderful world of birdom.  Yes, I’m aware it’s not a word.

Until now, he’s in capable hands, literally.

Have a happy Friday and a wonderful weekend.  I’ll just be over here birding.

What are your plans for this weekend?

Have you ever rescued an animal?   Tell me about it, please.
