When my little dog and I came back from a walk I went to go water some outside plants and came upon this tiny little bird next to one of the big planters. It is fully fledged so it’s not a baby. However something was going on because it did not move. It just breathed deeply repeatedly and stood there is if I couldn’t see it. Fortunately the dog ignored it entirely.
I went inside with the dog and got a small bowl of water and put it out relatively close to the little bird didn’t move at all. I was hoping that the poor little thing wasn’t dying but one never knows. I also hope that the condo cat wouldn’t get it.
It even let me get this close to take a picture.
I wasn’t about to interact further because in the event that there were other birds looking for it… As in parent birds and I didn’t want to have humans sent near it.
Half an hour later the little bird was gone. I hope all is well with it. The water is still there. There may be the bird had a drink and felt better. It is very hot outside so possibly the bird was too exhausted to go further.
Fly high little bird.
