Another 'Bird Woman' moment!

17 comments


This little Wren flew in through the patio door yesterday and literally crashed out on Rachel’s precious hand knitted bed throw, where it pooped quite a lot! So I picked it up and sat outside with it until it had recovered it’s sense. After a couple of minutes it flew off on to the windowsill before heading home to the hedge….

Its always a worry when a bird is in shock…but such a precious moment to hold one and see it’s beauty close-up! And thankfully both my rescues have turned out well so far!

Welldone, looks quite young, I suppose they poop in fright, hope it comes out of the throw ok

Yes, I think they do poop in fright. Good thing is, this one's poo was very small...came off with a tissue, no bother. Thanks! :)

they are a lovely little bird, so light, you did good there Karen. :O)

You're right Mum. It was so light I actually thought it had disappeared in to thin air when I cupped my hands around it. I had to open them up to check it was actually still inside!

I love wrens. We have lots who seem to spend most of their time in the sycamores at the bottom of the garden. They are so loud for such tiny birds - they make a great deal of noise! If I see one out of the corner of my eye, I'm never quite sure if it's a wren or a butterfly, they are so small.

:o)) I don't remember seeing Wrens in our garden..shame,as they are lovely little things...The Magpies we have,are a pain,and many more this year than we usually have..Probably the reason we don't get the Goldfinches anymore,as they used to nest in a big Conifer nearby..now taken over by these killers ! also the young blackbirds,and their eggs,as we listen to the parents with their alarm cries..so sad..Nature is very cruel sometimes..

It is Bloomer. You think it's all gentleness and peace...until you look closely, then you realise that it's a harsh and cruel life for most creatures.

And that's a very sharp beak on a wren!

He never pecked me. :)

Of course not - you were his rescuer! Although I don't suppose that necessarily protects one from pecks... You must have been giving off good vibes!
