Yesterday the dogs discovered a little sparrow that had somehow gotten into the house and was trapped in the computer room. There is a glass door that opens into the loungeroom and he must have been up again the glass. When Amy opened the door she thought a mouse ran out but it was just a little sparrow. At first I thought it was half dead – either from being trapped or from fright with two big dogs chasing it. But after further examination I put it into a box with some water and budgie seed to try and recover.
It’s foot looked broken but a few hours later seemed okay. We put him in the spare bird cage overnight.
His wing appeared to not be working properly so this morning I took him into our birds vet (they do work for WIRES). They were going to have the vet check him out but it’s looking like he’ll make a full recovering and be released. It was nice getting to play a part in saving his life.
