I don't know what to name this post....perhaps- 'Silenced', 'Sad Find', 'Silent Morning'.....or maybe 'Bird Killer'!!!!
The last few days were when my five baby birds were finding their wings..as I reported in my last post, this was the baby bird startled by me...so young, the thought of being out of the nest for a day, the frailty of it all, the careful preparation of the nest, maintaining the eggs, gathering food for endless trips back to the nest. Gracious chirping filled my window for the last couple of weeks warming my heart...renewed hope in the world... three of them left promptly, two remained back..someone has to be last from the nest, right? Well, my 'retriever', my 'oh, so beautiful golden fur', my 'dog that is suppose to have that soft mouth for bringing back birds without any ruffled feathers'......my BIRD KILLER....came in this morning with not one, but TWO baby birds dead in her mouth!!!!!!! Oh, yes, the look on her face, "Ma, I was just bringing back food for the pack"
Noooo, there was blood on the bird! Two of my babies...fragile life ended in the jaws of some well-fed tame WOLF in golden fur!!!!!!!
On a brighter note...here is the first picture of one of the rose bushes.
Meanwhile.....I'm giving the silent treatment to the bird killer!
