STRAWBERRY

ON THE 20th I FOUND A FLEDGLING HOPPING AROUND ON THE GROUND NEAR OUR DRIVE WAY. WE THOUGHT IT MIGHT HAVE FALLEN OUT OF IT'S NEST, BUT WE DIDN'T SEE ANY NEST EXCEPT FOR THE ROBINS NEST. SHE WAS SSSOOOOOOOOOO CUTE!!!! I DECIDED TO CALL IT A SHE. WE USED BUTTERFLY NETS AND CAUGHT HER. I GOT TO HOLD HER. HERE ARE SOME PICS OF ME HOLDING HER:

ISN'T SHE TINY? SHE'S SSSSSSSOOOOOOOO CUTE!!!! WE FOUND OUT THAT SHE WAS A BALTIMORE ORIOLE AND I LOOKED UP WHAT THEY ATE. I FOUND OUT THAT THEY EAT BERYS SO I GOT A LITTLE STRAWBERRY AND TRIED TO FEED HER. IF WE HELD OUR HANDS ABOVE HER SOME TIMES SHE OPENED HER BEAK FOR US TO FEED HER. WE HAD TO BE REALLY FAST OR SHE WOULD CLOSE HER BEAK. DAD TRIED DROPPING A PEICE OF BREAD INTO HER BEAK, BUT HE MISSED. I HAD SOME STRAWBERRY STUCK TO MY FINGER AND WHEN SHE OPENED HER BEAK I MANAGED TO WIPE IT ON THE EDGE OF HER BEAK. SHE ATE IT SO I DECIDED TO NAME HER STRAWBERRY, BERRY FOR SHORT. WE FOUND OUT THAT FLEDGELINGS LEARN TO FLY FROM THE GROUND AND THEIR PARENTS ARE CLOSE TAKING CARE OF THEM, SO WE PUT HER BACK DOWN IN A SAFER PLACE. I GOT TO SEE HER PARENTS FEEDING HER. THE NEXT DAY I HEAARD HER AND FOLLOWED THE SOUND OF HER VOICE (SHE IS REALLY, REALLY LOUD). I SAW HER FLUTTERING AROUND IN THE WOODS BEHIND THE CHICKEN COOP. HER PARENTS WERE THERE FEEDING HER. SHE WENT ALL THE WAY FROM CLOSE TO THE WOOD PILE TO BEHIND THE CHICKEN COOP!!!! SHE WAS SSSSOOOO CUTE!!!!

CHICK PICTURES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

THE CHICKS ARE HUGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HERE ARE THE PICTURES OF THE CHICKS WHEN THEY WERE A DAY OLD:

WEREN'T THEY SOOOOO CUTE? THE ONE WITH THE BIG WHITE DOT ON HER HEAD IS CANDY. HERE ARE SOME PICTURES OF THEM NOW:

THIS ONE OF THE FIRST COUPLE TIMES I BROUGHT THEM OUTSIDE. I TRY TO BRING THEM OUT EVERY DAY BECAUSE IT TIRES THEM OUT, AND WHEN THEY ARE TIRED THEY SLEEP DURING THE NIGHT. MOST OF THE TIME THEY ARE AWAKE PART OF THE NIGHT BECAUSE IT LOOKS BRIGHT WITH THEIR LIGHT. HERE ARE SOME MORE RESENT PICTURE OF CANDY:
SHE'S REALLY FRIENDLY AND LIKES TO BE HELD.
SHE'S THE ONE IN THE BACK. YOU CAN TELL HER APART BY THE WHITE DOT ON HER HEAD AND THE WHITE ON THE END OF HER TAIL.
I WAS HOLDING CANDY AND SHE FLEW OFF MY HAND. I DECIDED ON NAMES FOR ALL OF MY CHICKS EXEPT ONE. WE HAVE 6. MY SISTER ONLY WANTED 2, SO I GOT 4. MY SISTER'S CHICKS ARE CANDY AND FIREFLY AND MY CHICKS ARE ECHO, RIVER, INKY, AND I HAVEN'T GOTTEN A NAME FOR THE LAST ONE. IF YOU HAVE ANY IDEAS LEAVE ME A COMMENT.
