  • Lucky baby bird

    It is a good thing I am able to mow the lawn, or there probably wouldn't be any chance for this baby bird, which I think is a wren. Oh, he/she wouldn't get chopped by the blade, just crushed by the wheels especially with the commercial mowers. I was mowing, and saw a tiny movement in the grass. Then I saw it was a baby bird. Maybe fell out of the nest trying to do the maiden flight. And since I have bird boxes around, probably from one of my boxes. I kept my eye out when I was mowing, hoping the bird would hop into the heavy bushes. And just when I thought the baby had, it was right in front of my mower, and then scampering underneath. I immediately cut the power and lifted the mower up. The bird was all right. The baby is not a lot bigger than a golf ball. And last week when I was mowing the lawn, the resident grass snake slithered in front of my mower.

        All I know is that I didn't do it any harm. It was near heavily vegetated area, and I know the parents are around as I see them. It could almost fly, and with birds, that doesn't take long to go from almost to flying.

          And the parents will take care of them while they’re on the ground.
