Oh My Heart.... this precious baby bird had fallen from it's nest and I happened upon it during my lunch hour... being very concerned for it, I couldn't just walk away and "hope for the best"... so I called my friend who works at a vet clinic... she informed me that the Wild Bird Store over in the Marigold Shopping Center takes in rescues much like this one... so, since I was leaving work early anyway... I thought I'd leave an extra 1/2 an hour early to take it there; this with the hopes that they could feed it and eventually set it free.
Well, as I was sitting at my desk, I kept the baby within eyesight so I could make sure it was comfy and safe... I noticed it's breathing changed dramatically so I informed my supervisor that I needed to get the bird to the rescue people quicky... I was worried. So I log out of my computer and then go over and swipe my timecard, I come back to pick up my purse and the box with baby bird and notice that baby bird had stopped breathing and moving... my little baby bird passed away before I could get it to the people to help. :((
Needless to say... I cried... I tried to a do a good deed for such a tiny creature who could not help itself... but I was too late. I hurt. :(
