Baby Overboard

Hansel was wheeling his first barrow-load of dirt of the long weekend when he discovered the baby bird. The fledgling blue jay was cowering beside the recycling bin, too young to fly away. That explains the scream (surely their collective noun?) of blue jays who have been divebombing for days at the back of the house. Hansel and I looked at each other and wondered how best to help. We decided to wait for Marilyn. The bird hopped behind the air conditioning unit. It is not there now. We haven’t seen a cat.
