A bird in the hand

My daughter called me to the porch telling me a chickadee was lying there and it looked dead. I picked up the poor unconscious little thing and gently stroked it …

bird in hand, chickadeeand it responded, struggled to its feet and tottered there … “Don’t be afraid to fly…”

bird in hand chickadeeI settled him safely out of the way and a short time later he flew away.

Ese’s shoot and quote is: Spread
