While driving home in October I approached what looked like a peice of paper . As I drove by I thought I saw wings move. I went back to explore closer. I saw a little bird laying on it's back in the street. I felt so sorry for it because it was still alive but couldn't flip off of it's back. I didn't want it to get run over or eaten by an animal. It didn't appear hurt but couldn't fly, I wanted it to die in peace if it was going to die. I got a piece of paper, scooped up the bird, placed it right side up in a little box with a lid in my trunk and took it home not knowing what to do. Once home, I picked the bird up and he still wasn't able to fly. When I saw it panting I gave it a few drops of water from a spoon. There was a small empty terarium on my deck, so I decided to put the bird inside with some water and cracker crumbs until I could buy bird seed. I wanted to keep it inside but I have a cat!! After placing the bird righside up in the terarium, I Googled to find out what type of bird it was and found it was a House Wren. Before leaving to get the bird seed I prayed that the bird would improve or live until I got back. I went out to check the bird once more before leaving. It started flapping it's wings and before I could catch it, it flew out of the terarium up to a tree and then on the ground. I was so happy the bird was okay. When I went to approach the tree to be sure the bird was okay it flew away swooping around before it landed some distance away. I guess it fell on it's back and had the wind knocked out of it. I was happy about my good deed in helping and protecting one of God's creatures. It made my day!
