Recently, this guy received a call to inspect a loose pile of twigs and feathers that fell out of a stack of garden chairs.
When he got there he discovered it was a destroyed bird’s nest, but when he picked it up, he found survivors.
Two of the tiniest eggs you’ve ever seen were laying in the ruins of what used to be their home. He decided to try and give them a shot at life. Very carefully he placed them in an incubator and thus began one of the most remarkable rescue stores we’ve seen in a while.
He didn’t know if the eggs would even hatch, bus still he meticulously took care of them, turned them three times a day so they would develop properly if there was indeed something inside.
While waiting he was at the same time excited and scared about the chance of raising a bird this little.
His efforts were not in vain. After a while one chick eventually hatched. It was only then that he realized what an enormous task was still ahead of him. There he had this tiny baby… and it was hungry.
The only thing he had around small enough for the chick to eat were rose bush lice, but even so feeding the bird with his giant human hands was tedious and time consuming. Soon, he added mosquitoes to the menu.
It took 80 feeding rounds a day to keep the chick healthy but his hard work paid off.
Before long, he had a healthy adult in his hands… ready to be set free. And before he even had a chance to say good-bye, it took off.
I don’t think he will regret not saying good-bye for too long. After all, because of his dedication and kindness, a tiny little bird got a chance to live.
