Last Day with Blindy

Morgan spent her last day with the little sick Goldfinch on Saturday. We didn't know it would be his last day. We even called our sweet neighbor Krista to see if she had a birdcage we could keep the little guy in for safety until he passed. We could tell the end was near.
But until then Morgan and Daisy Lu made sure Blindy had his sunflower seeds and plenty of water to drink.Yes Daisy, you have to be good around this little fellow.Promise you won't hurt him......deal.Speak softly.Tell stories.Show some lovin.A little sniffin.......but he's not that crispy chicken Daisy loves.Sunday morning Blindy was on the feeder. Morgan was to put him in his cage with food and water but when she went outside he was gone and did not return.
We will miss him.

So he survived and flew away? I assume that's what you're saying, right?

Ah....how sad. Morgan and Daisy Lu are good nurses and at least the poor bird was happy and cared for at the end.
