This is in Memoriam to a couple of wild birds.
The first bird is from when I was about 7-8 years of age or like 27-28 years ago.
Me and my brother were going to school early in the morning as we walked out the door we found in our front yard a bird. The problem was that his
left eye was hanging out and down by a long thread. He had probably escaped a cat. He was in so much pain that he came to us and let us hold him and
pick him up.
We put him in an ice cream container and left him on the bench as we had to get to school. I remember thinking to myself that I should tell mum who
was in another room how much pain he was in again so that she would hurry and take him to the vet but I just left it and didn't say anything. I
should have given mum more urgency.
He was in heaps of pain. A wild blackbird that let us handle him. He was defeated. You could see how much pain he was in. All his fear was
Now the second Bird, also a blackbird. With this one I was walking to a friends. I heard and saw this screeching and flapping. It was a bird who
had got his leg stuck between two paling's on a fence. I approached him thinking I could just grab him and lift him up gently and set him free. As I
reached my hands out near him he panicked even more and went even more wild so I had to back away. About 4-5 seconds more of the bird flapping
panicking with its leg stuck it just dropped dead. I immediatly without touching the bird pulled the two paling's apart and the bird dropped down to
the ground. If it had lived about 3 more seconds I would of been able to set it free in this manner.
So this post is in memoriam of these two birds. The first who was in so much pain I could touch him, the second so panicked I couldn't get near
I just remember how much pain this bird was in and wanted to post a memoriam for that. He was in a lot of pain. Heaps of pain. Birds feel pain.
So that's it. Think what you will.
