Our cat Sjoko brought Maggie a gift... a bird.
The bird was mangled, bleeding, and lying very still in shock. We fetched the hamster cage from the garage and the girls made the bird a nice clean bed, gave her seeds and water, and set the cage in a safe and warm place. Anna named her "Tina".
"Is she going to live?" Anna asked.
"Probably not," we told her. "But at least she can be comfortable and know that she is being taken care of. And that's important."
The next morning, Tina was flapping all around her cage! The kids released her in the backyard and she flew up into the tea garden, where immediately a huge magpie swooped in to attack. ("Some days you just can't get rid of a bomb!" (anyone know the quote?)) I ran up the hill throwing rocks at the Magpie. Magpie flew away, Tina disappeared into the trees, and Anna stopped screaming. Good luck Tina!
Anyone know what kind of bird this is?
