Happy story

Well hello there, I’m alive. I’m alive! He’s alive! Meet my little buddy. I found him when I was in recently. I felt like I needed to check out the lake for a quick minute before leaving the house. Was just going out there for a minute because, well, I felt like something was up.

My animal-in-distress instinct was right: this little fledgling was pretty much drowning, stuck in a big glob gob of algae. He wasn’t looking too hot, soaking wet and I didn’t see any adults around. Couldn’t find a nest, thinking he was force fledged. Luckily, the sun was just starting to show itself, so I stuck him in a safe sunny zone in a tree nearby.

Kept checking on him every thirty minutes or so and a couple hours later, he was getting nice and fluffy dry. Soon after that he started begging and soon after that, his parents found him and started shoving worms down his throat! Excellent! There’s your happy story of the day. 🙂
