We celebrated Memorial Day with family and friends including a visiting guest, Matilda. Dad found Matilda struggling to fly on the side of the road in Arlington. How he spotted this little girl while going 50 miles an hour is still a mystery to me.
My parents fed her sugar water through a dropper and found the perfect rehab facility in Grayson's retired bug catcher. Today was day two of her visit. She was alert, eating well and even preening. We took this as a good sign.
We all took turns feeding her. How often will we have this kind of opportunity?
Through the power of Facebook, I connected with a friend at Lichterman Nature Center who connected us to the Wild Wings Rescue group. Thank goodness for animal loving volunteers.
Matilda will meet up with one of the Rescue volunteers in the morning. We hope she has a speedy recovery. Stay tuned for Matilda updates.
Thank you to my sweet parents for rescuing this little lady, to Andy Williams his love of birds and for knowing who to contact and to all of the volunteers of the Wild Wings Rescue Group.
