Our little nature girl had the best Earth Day surprise: a visit from a baby mockingbird in flight training.
Dag-a-roo first discovered this "little fella" and was excited to have his very own live, chirping playmate. We removed the bully, and in a matter of seconds...Ella and her "little sister bird" were nesting;). Every time E would attempt to put the baby bird back in the bamboo tree where the mama and babies were, "little sister bird" would jump back on Ella and settle in. This went on for well over an hour.
Of course she wanted to bring "baby Texas state bird" in and have it as her "pet." Instead, we settled on singing it a good night song and perching it on a limb close to mama and siblings.
She thinks the surprise visit was God's way of thanking her for always feeding his creations!
