This is a flickr first for me....wildlife (well if you don't count yesterdays bug). I came across this bird coming into work. I saw it on the ground and just assumed it was stunned. I came back few minutes later and noticed it was still on the ground. So I picked it up. Upon closer inspection I noticed something lodged in it's eye (wood or something). So really carefully pulled on it..but it wasnt budging. The thought crossed my mind that I was trying to pull out its dislodged eyeball. So I looked closer and I was pretty sure it wasn't (an eyeball). So I carefully yanked it out. As soon as I did the bird perked up, so I set him down for a photoshoot. Then we put him in a safe location. Several minutes later we found that he/she has flown away. So when people ask what I do..I reply "I save birds".
