Default Spent the last hour teaching a bird to fly.

Yup. No ****. Two parent crows caught my attention this morning. Non-flying rather large baby standing in the street.

I scooped him up and took him into my back yard, (cats were put inside), and Bo and I proceeded to scare the ever-loving **** out of the little noisy biting bastard.

I gave him 8 launches the length of my yard. The 8th launch, he gained altitude instead of losing it and smacking into the fence, and flew over the fence and across the street.

Imagine a wren teaching a crow to fly.

For some reason this is really making me laugh, imagining you getting attacked by birds.

Shoulda strapped the little bugger to the roof...then ripped down the road. That would have been enough speed to get him flappin.

At first I thought this was going to be one of those heart warming stories and then I read the rest of it. Too hilarious!!!

I recently heard that what birds secrete is actually not poop. It is dry urine Then they said... Have you ever seen a bird pee?

I don't know if that is valid but maybe one of the brainiacs around here can tell us the truth.

Anyways- you did your good deed for the day so you can be rotten the rest of today
