Every year around this time the baby birds start dropping down from their nests to try to fly on their own. Well, today a baby bird was flopping around our shed in the back yard. I noticed Sadie and Pooh Bear sniffing around a lot out there. I walked out to see what was out there. I think the baby had just fell out of the nest. Sadie grabbed it in her mouth. I screeched/screamed and she dropped it. I got the baby to a safe place away from the Beagles. I looked up in the trees and saw the nest was in the tallest Palm Tree by the shed. There was no way to put the baby back up there. I called our animal refuge and explained the circumstance. They said to try to put the baby back in the nest. I explained that I don't have a ladder and the nest is way up high. They asked if the baby was injured. I could not tell, he wasn't moving, just sitting. They said I could bring him in. I went to find a small box and when I got out to the little bird, he was laying on his side. I was so sad. I knew he was dead, but I got him and took him on in to the animal refuge (they are just around the corner from my house). They confirmed that the poor thing was dead. Not sure if Sadie hurt him or what. I cried. It's not Sadie's fault, she is a born hunter and birds are their prey.
