A couple weeks ago we received a frantic call from some friends of ours. They have quite a few Blue Jays nesting in their trees and one baby had fallen out the night before and was hopping around yelling. After waiting to see if the parents would hang around and take care of their prodigal chick, Faith and I drove over to see how it was and maybe take it home.
Well needless to say, baby bird ended up traveling home with us and was dubbed Kevin, by the Roehrer children after the bird in the Movie "UP".
Kevin is a doll she/he\it, has gotten rather independent now but still loves to come inside where it is cool in the hot afternoon and cuddle down on a finger for an afternoon nap. In fact I have the little creature perched on my left hand's fingers right now as I slowly peck with my right:-) Chs
