Today I came home from work and
found this tiny creature on our deck.
It was motionless and its eyes were closed.
I didn't see the usual feathers smeared on the window
that we find when the birds hit the glass,
but I suspect it flew into the closed window.
I went to check on it and it chirped.
I thought that was a good sign!
I watched and waited
and it seemed to perk up.
It was so little, but calmly sat
while I checked it out.
I left and kept coming back to check on it.
About 30 minutes later it flitted happily
back to the willows.....
