That came to visit.
I was sitting out on the swing Wednesday night and heard a strange little sound. Saw a hosta leaf move and found this little fellow.
Either hit by a car, or fell out of our oak tree.
He couldn't move his body from the middle back down, so I don't think he could have crawled into our yard from the street if a car hit him.
We called the Bird Lady at Yorktown Wildlife Resqu Haus and she had us bring him over.
She was going to call some BSU professors to come get him and nurse him back to health if the paralysis was temporary.
While we were there, we got to meet:
Furrby the Screech Owl
Stevie, the blind kestrel
a Barred Owl
five individual Red Tail Hawks
a Peregrine Falcon
and these little cuties, juvenile Screech Owls.
Mrs. Shaffer will take in injured and "unwanted" animals from all over. Besides our squirrel and the birds pictured, she had baby bunnies, baby starlings, robins, ducks, chickens and sparrows.
I'm hoping this is somewhere Middleman, Bean and I can volunteer at over the summer. Cleaning cages and helping to feed the animals.
What an adventure!
