At about 5 am I was woken by that familiar 'thump ' of a bird flying into a window. If our dear Smokey were still alive ( died at age 24!) she would have been outside in a flash .
This time I found a young screech owl, only about 5" high, looking rather stunned. Poor wee thing.
I left him/her for about half an hour hoping he would recover, but he was still on the window ledge.
So I went to make him a bed ( or worse), a shoe box lined in old silk ties, thinking I would take him to the vet.
When I came back he was gone. I hope he is OK.
He does look a little bit cross.ReplyDelete
you might be too!Delete
What a precious little thing. Hope he's okay!ReplyDelete
Awww -poor thing! He probably has a massive migraine after all that.ReplyDelete
owl love! :D xoxoReplyDelete
What a wonderful surprise and I am so pleased he did not need the vet. Take care.ReplyDelete
I expect he was just shocked and stunned. A bed of silk ties eh? - he might well be back.ReplyDelete
I was going to give a link to the vintage tie section in my scarf shop, but thought it might be a bit crass!Delete
am i allowed to say that he looks quite menacing???ReplyDelete
you might feel rather menacing if you flew into a window at 5 am. Perhaps he was waiting for a get well treat.....a mouse or bit of old steak.Delete
