Bird Whispering

What are the odds that anyone would consider themselves a bird whisperer?  Perhaps deep down we all secretly aspire to be one.   It is certainly plausible... right?  Wishful thinking?  I'll let you decide.

In spite of the bird warning decals on all our windows, we still get bird brains flying into our dirty windows, imprints plus feathers serve as evidence.  This is where I come in. If they haven't broken their necks, there is a chance they'll recover.

I pick them up and provide a little TLC until they recover.  S/he spent a good hour with me.  S/he seemed to be quite comfortable on its human perch.  S/he eventually flew to a nearby tree.   It is always a gratifying experience when you can lend a helping hand.

I am certainly not a bird whisperer. Whenever I'm around, they avoid me.
Poor little thing. Glad you are around to help them out.

My husband rescued a junco the other day just the same as you did. Unfortunately I wasn't around to get the photos. :(

Birds love me - I have several feeders and enjoy watching the many varieties here BUT they are smart!! They know what my camera look like and when theey see it they skeedaddle!!

Great shots!!
I'm not - but I certainly wish I were! Nice shots.
Linda said…
My hubby always rescues whatever he finds - birds, wasps, bees, you name it! Nice shot of you with the little birdie!

Oh you are a bird whisperer poor but lucky thing. I had the same thing happen this week with a poor Chick-a- Dee. I picked it up laid it on a soft chair and let it recover adn hour later I watched it fly off. I was happy. B
I think you are a bird whisperer for sure. So glad you rescue them.
I haven't had that happen in a long time. I guess my windows are dirty enough that they don't try it. ;)

Hello,

I would love to be a bird whisperer. You are certainly can do this!

This is amazing how you earned trust of this little bird.

And Linda took fantastic pictures. I enjoyed them very much. These pictures are unique!

Excellent gallery of photos.
Sensitivity ... framework ... angles ... colors ... records ...
all in perfect harmony.

Thank you for your visit and comment.

I'm assuming this cute bird flew into your window and you took care of it for an hour. I'm hoping this means the bird recovered enough to fly away?
Tammy said…
Hope that sweet little one makes a speedy recovery!!!
Kay said…
Poor little peep! Glad it recovered enough to take flight again. I can almost hear it saying, "I was just flying along, minding my own business, when BAM! The next thing I knew I was on this big, warm perch. . ."

I'm impressed! That bird appears to trust you. :)
Betsy Brock said…
I'm seriously impressed! :) How fun to be able to enjoy her for an hour there. Hope she completely recovered. We've had a few collide with our window, too, but I've never gone out to whisper to them! ha.
Very fun pics!

Brilliant photography Linda and what a story.

You are a good guy Dan. We are going to have to call you the Birdman Of Prince Edward County.
Terri Buster said…
I always cringe when a bird flies into our window out front- yours seems a bit stunned, but so glad he is ok!

What a cutie and so trusting. I am glad she/he was Ok after hitting the window. Great shots, have a wonderful day!
Just beautiful, Daniel. I am so happy you were able to revive this little one (Golden finch?), and I can really relate to the joy you would have felt in being so close to it for a whole hour. Quite the gift for each of you, I'd say.
Lisa Gordon said…
This little one sure looks quite content, Daniel!
It was very fortunate that you were there to make sure it was okay.
Happy Sunday to you!
Karen said…
Poor Bird! Glad you rescued it and had this great photo to remember. xx
Pat said…
Beautiful story. I'm so glad you were able to give the little Goldfinch a safe place to rest and recover.
Hilary said…
Aww sweet. Thank you for that.
Madge Bloom said…
Sweet... I do that too... it's the only time I get to closely inspect some of the wild birds I love... Thank you for sharing on Weekly Top Shot #50!
Danielle said…
I will never forget the first time I saw a bird fly into a window...I was heartbroken...until I saw it get up quite awhile later, shake itself...and fly off. Continue to be a great bird whisperer ... they are much in demand.
Deanna said…
glad to hear he/she was alright, bet you enjoyed your time with her.
thank you for visiting my blog while I was away, I really appreciate it, love the shots of the bufflehead duck.

Oh, yes, I hate it when I find one who has met its end below my window. Sometimes I find feathers stuck to the window and go looking just to make sure. More times than not, they have recovered since there is not evidence of their demise. No better profession than being a bird whisperer!

You are a man after my own heart!
