Gone to the birds...

My kids were playing so quietly outside. (That should have been my first warning.) When I went to go check on them, this is what I found.

They found a bird and were petting it on the trampoline! Then we found another one on the grass below a tree.

I didn't know what to do. I called animal control but they only deal with domestic animals. Luckily Jer came home and helped me find a safe shaded place to put them. They look like they are almost ready to fly.

Only my kids would want to keep them. When Brook asked, Jer said well, are you going to chew up worms and feed them to the birds because that is what they eat. Brook thought that was sick! ha ha. What an interesting morning.

Oh we couldn't do anything but let them go some place else safe.
I sure did sanitize them a lot! AHHH!
