Care for our Feathered Friends

Posted on Fri, Jul 8, 2011 at 1:35 PM

To the caring young lady cyclist who so carefully looked after a fallen bird on my way to work on Thursday morning, I was a silent witness to your compassionate and tender care of a poor crow that had been struck by a car. Through my car window I saw you so gently, tenderly lay the poor bird on the grass by the Oxford school on North St. In my hurry to work I did not stop but my glimpse of you as you offered a small gesture of human comfort to the poor creature left an impression, not just for the day but I think forever. It was a 10 second view, but a lifelong memory. I do not know the fate of the crow, but I am most certain that s/he was comforted by your presence and your caring. Bless you. —Crewj24
