Woman Finds A Baby House Finch Bird On Her Porch | The Dodo Little But Fierce

When I first found Twerp,
he was as big as my thumb. He was just a day old. He looked prehistoric. He was with no feathers, he just had a little bit of fuzz. We had some high winds and it blew the nest out of the wreath. I cupped him in my
hand and kept him warm and I just watched for the mother.
I never saw her come back. He’d been out there too long and I brought him in. I googled I didn’t think I could keep him alive. It was touch and go. He weighed 14, 15 grams. We had to feed him every 15 minutes. I had to make little noises at him, try to poke him and touch his
beak until he opened his mouth. Is that it? OK. He started getting stronger. In the morning he would just open his mouth and start peeping at me to get fed. He looked like a tiny dinosaur. He put on a gram to 2 grams a day. He started getting little pin feathers. The feathers came in. He started flapping his wings and getting stronger. I took him outside a lot. You’re funny. You’re a funny baby. He started flitting back and forth from me to the cage. The day he flew away, I was feeding him on the porch and he flew up and was gone and I thought, “Oh, he’s gone now.” That afternoon he came back. He would fly to me and sit on my hand and I could feed him. I used to say he was yelling at me. He’d see me come out the door
and he’d always yell at me. It was just amazing. He would
come 5 or 6 times a day and he’d fly away when he was done. And then I put a bird feeder in my garden and I saw him for a couple of days. Then he’s just stopped coming. I’m still amazed that I raised him. It’s hard to believe that I did that.

    It's sad when they fly away but such birds belong in the wild. The fact she was able to raise up to fly and fend for himself it a testament to her adoration for animals.

    I rescued two pigeons that fell off a huge coconut tree near my house and the day they were fully grown and flew away, I cried so much…The last day they both flew nearby my house and took a last goodbye glance at me….But I feel proud of raising them…One was white and the other was a black one…

    It's always bittersweet when they stop coming back. I've saved and nurtured birds before and then I have to let them be birds and fly away. It breaks my heart but makes me proud that they are able to be part of nature again. This lady is awesome! She saved his life and became his mother. Now that is love…
