A Bird in Hand is Worth...

...saving. I found this lesser golden finch lying on my porch being attacked by a colony of ants. S/he fell right asleep once in a borrowed nest, refusing even my offering of ground up seeds.

S/he was very perky in the morning, so I took the bird to our bird rescue sanctuary. Upon walking into the rescue building, I was greeted by one of my employees (whom I didn't know volunteered there). She reported at a staff meeting later in the day that the bird was doing great and would live a happy life.

Without you there would have been one less bird to enjoy...

Somehow "lesser" golden finch seems a bit inappropriate for something as wonderful and amazing as a bird.

But if Jesus can have lesser miracles, I guess ornithology can have lesser finches.
