Last summer this little yellow bird showed up at my feeder. No one believed me that it was a canary,until I got a picture of him. My friend lost her bird one summer when the door was left open and out he flew. Though I hadn't seen her in 20 years, I felt her pain now. Her beloved Peety..gone.
So I called PAWS to see if anyone had reported their canary missing. Need I tell you I got a snicker on the other side of the phone. "No,no one" she managed to say before saying goodbye.
But I knew he did belong to someone. All I could do was make sure there was always seed in the feeders. His buddies,the cardinals and finches showed him the rest. He stayed all summer...a happy yellow spot in my trees. then Fall came and he stayed and then winter....He was brave....and my heart broke with every drop in temperature.
