Ryan's Little Buddy

Yesterday, Ryan and I found a baby bird that had fallen out of the tree in front of our apartment. After seeing the bird several time throughout the day, we began feeling bad and decided that we needed to do something to help. Luckily, our friends Tiffany and James had found a bird about a month ago and had the address of a couple who takes care of baby birds.

Watching the bird huddled in the corner, we decided that the least we could do was to take the bird to the shelter. So we ventured out with a box and began our adventure of trying to catch the bird and bring it into our apartment for the night. When we got it into the apartment, Ryan did his best to make the bird feel at home. Now I've always thought of myself as a pretty compassionate person, but when it comes to birds, I have to say that Ryan is MUCH more compassionate than I am.

Once we got the bird inside, Ryan crumpled up some toilet paper for a bed and even smushed up some fruit for it to eat. When we closed the door to the room it was in, Ryan thought the room seemed too dark so he put his laptop in the room so the bird wouldn't get scared. It was so cute watching Ryan going back into the room throughout the night to check on the bird.

When we woke up in the morning, Ryan was so excited to see that the bird had actually eaten his fruit concoction. On his way to work, Ryan dropped the bird off at the shelter and said goodbye to his little friend. Although it was a short-lived adventure, it was SO entertaining to watch Ryan with his "little buddy." I can't help but think that if Ryan was that compassionate with a bird, there's no doubt he's gonna be an awesome dad one day.
