Day 11 of 30 Days Wild – helping hand

Just after getting home from school today we heard a commotion coming from the utility room.

A pigeon had come in from the garden through the open door, hopped up on to the window sill but then couldn’t find its way back out and had started to panic.

Grabbing a towel we managed to catch it, check it hadn’t damaged any of its feather, as it was flapping about against the glass, before letting it go in the garden.

The pigeon waddled off down the garden path, back towards the bird feeder.

    Oh no, it’s so sad when birds get panicked! I’m glad you were able to bring him to safety. 🙂
