I took this video today of the Florida Sand Hill Crane with a baby. The Sand Hill Crane is a protected species and to see them with a new born is just uplifting. I also was able to get within ten feet of these beautiful birds for some pictures as well. You can see the pictures on the Creative Images by Jaxs and Kim web site.
Enjoy the video and below the video is a link to the Creative Images web site.
My friend Thelma was brutally killed. She was found dead on the 4th of July. I covered her up and buried her. Thelma came into my life a little more than five years ago. It was my son that brought two baby chicks home and swore up and down he would take care of them. Of course that didn't happen. Over the years I enjoyed their company. Trying to mow the yard was a pain. Thelma and her sister Louise would get in front of the mower trying to help. Or the times I would do yard work, the girls would be right under my feet like two year olds. It was always nice to be greeted at the backdoor after a long day. There were my girls. Thelma was a sweetie and didn't hesitate to give me hell when it was time for a snack. I'm glad Kim had the opportunity to spend some time with Thelma. I spoil all my girls. I enjoyed my time with you my friend. May you rest in peace.
Back in February some mystery chickens showed up. Recently one of the hens had thirteen babies. Somebody came and took the mommy and twelve babies leaving one behind. Now we get to be surrogate parents to this little chick. Isn't she a cutie
Today Kim joined me on yet another animal rescue. Got a phone call about a Blue Jay. I thought or should I say was giving the impression that the blue jay was an adult bird. Upon arriving at the couple's home I quickly realized it was just a baby. A little more than a fledgling. He apparently had a run in with a paddle fan. Fortunately he had no broken bones. He had a very sore leg and was unable to stand not to mention the poor little guy was stressed. Went to the pet store and got some erythimyacin to help with the stress and pain the blue jay was in. He is going to make a full recovery in a few short days. He was feeling much better when Kim and I had left. I'm sure Kim will post a video that was taken so look for that over on SqueakeyCats blog. Can't seem to get away from Kim's camera. LMAO
Today I got a phone call from my son. He had caught an injured bird and didn't know what to do. As it turned out the bird was on a very busy road walking around having problems with his wings. I contacted the wildlife refuge, wrapped the bird like a burrito for safe transport. Kim held the bird until we arrived at our destination. The bird was a Neotropic Cormorant that had an old injury, which had healed, enabling the bird not to fly very well. He is being taken to a better location in the morning so he doesn't get run over by a car. Neotropic Cormorants live in tropic and subtropic area's. They are water birds and can be found near fresh water, bracken, or salt water. They dive short distances to catch fish which isn't very effective. Kim (Squeakey Cat) had a good time holding this beautiful bird.
I started as a child bringing home injured animals. Finding someone to help the animals and later on nursing the animals back to health with the assistance of The Creature Safe Space wildlife refuge. I have 40 years of experience handling injured wildlife. My specialty is handling birds. I had a rare opportunity to rescue a pileated woodpecker sitting in my backyard with an injured wing. The pileated woodpecker is a protected bird. It`s numbers have declined because of disappearing forest. It is the largest woodpecker in North America. The pileated woodpecker eats insects, fruits, nuts, carpenter ants, and beetle larvae. The pileated woodpecker was the model for the cartoon Woody Woodpecker, produced by Walter Lantz. Woody was created in 1940 by a storyboard artist Ben "Bugs" Hardaway. Woody was voiced by prolific voice actor Mel Blanc, who was succeeded by Ben Hardaway and later by Grace Stafford, wife of Walter Lantz. The Woody Woodpecker cartoons were first broadcast on tv in 1957.
