the aviary

somehow my sister's house turned into the world's largest aviary. it was a freakin' scene from The Birds this weekend. she starts texting me about birds in her house. first it was just one that she caught as evidenced by these pictures:

it had been trapped within her walls and somehow she wrangled it out. one of her kids caught it by the leg. later Gold Digger starts texting me about more birds. now they're flying out of her closet. i'm wondering if she's hallucinating, but she'd already sent me the pics of the one so i know it's got to be partly true. by the third bird she's frantically chasing around the house, i'm wondering if she's trapped in an episode of The Twilight Zone. if she was, it wasn't an emergency so i decided to spend the day hanging with a friend. so Gold Digger called Tangerine Dream to go help with the bird conundrum. i heard the story later. i guess the indoor bird problem was resolved, but there was another bird problem outside. some baby birds had fallen out of their nest and were dying in her drive way. two were already ant food...literally. the other lived long enough for these pictures:
here it is smiling for the camera.
here is Tangerine Dream's GF holding it.

here he is belly up and ready to die.
i felt bad for the baby birds because i love birds. (one kind in particular...) but the mother bird abandoned them after they fell. not a really nice thing to do on Mother's Day, but i guess birds don't follow societal rules.

I didn't know if I should laugh or cry when I saw the languished bird. He looked awful cute 'smiling.'
