Let me share an old story.
The next morning the little chick kept cheeping for food and water, and rejecting whatever was offered 😦 What were we going to do with a baby sparrow we did not know how to feed?
We had also heard that once a baby bird was touched by human hands, its parents would not touch it.
And the father 🙂
This very worried and very loving set of parents wanted to get inside!!
(These two pictures were taken later. At the time this was happening, I was too worried to get out the camera)
Although unsure of their reactions, I opened the window just a bit…
Watch what happened 😀
For us, a cruel and dangerous myth was broken that morning!
What if we had put the baby in a cage or taken the baby somewhere where the parents couldn’t hear it cheeping loud ? (That is how, I think, they found where the baby was).
