I saved a bird!

The honour of the very first post should go to my heroic save of a bird.

This happened sometime in the afternoon on 2-Jun 2010. I was sitting in the living room when I heard a bang, flutter flutter flutter then thud just outside my window. Curious what it was, I opened the door only to find a bird (I wasn’t sure what it was at that time) lying upside down on the floor and breathing very heavily.

I was sure it was going to die but I tried to save it anyway. I picked it up gently and brought it to a shadier place and offered it water to drink. I even smsed my TA for LSM2251 to ask what I should do. Paul said I should give it some fruits. I checked and found that my house did not have any fruits so I gave it some seeds instead. This bird was unappreciative and refused my seeds and water.

Checking on it every 5 minutes, this bird eventually was able to hop around the backyard, as seen in the picture below.

Finally, after about 1.5 hours, the bird was finally strong enough and flew away.

I checked with Siva later and found that it was a juvenile koel.

Technically, I didn’t do much, but can’t help smiling to myself that I saved a bird!

    That’s a juvenile Asian glossy starling. Glad to know it survived!
