- The babies were helped out of my pool by the aid of a makeshift dock comprised of a few fence boards and a towel.
- They faced the early morning advances of a Harris Hawk most likely called to breakfast by the constant chirping… Buffet!
- And traveled from one neighborhood pool to another, some chicks with more successful then others.
I did my best to remember that as cute as they may be these are wild animals. With a dedicated mother they did not need my interference. If a few were lost, and they were, that is natures way not that it did not sadden my heart. I want them all to grow up health, go to college and become doctors, lawyers and astronauts. In future, when I see these lovely creatures flying overhead I will always wonder if that is one of the little ones we hosted for a brief time.
