    Baby is growing up...

    This is a small video of that little ball of feathers I posted a week or so back.
    http://gms9810.com/baby.htm

    The last time I kept an open mind,
    my brain fell out and the dog grabbed it.
    Now it's full of dirt, toothmarks, and dog slobber.
    No more open minds or dogs for me.www.gms9810.com/

    Lovely baby!

    I raised a common starling years ago, when it fell out of its nest, blind and bald.

    He turned into the greatest little fella ever, full of cheek and getting into everything, including bathing in my man's shaving water! We used to go outside and sit under a tree and he would pick away at bugs under the leaves. One day a bird flew by and swooped him and off he went, never to be seen again. But he knew how to feed himself, so hopefully found his place in the world. I'll never forget how much fun he was.... and how much work!

    I raised a baby hawk once, the dopey guys at work found it against a fence and were trying to feed it a frozen pork chop. I hand fed it chopped up mice until it could eat for itself. Then it sat on my shoulder for the whole 40 mile drive home. Then I let my girls hold it and we let it go. It sat there looking at me for a long time then flew away. It hung around our yard for several years.

    The last time I kept an open mind,
    my brain fell out and the dog grabbed it.
    Now it's full of dirt, toothmarks, and dog slobber.

    A lot of people don't care much for critters so I'm apprehensive about posting critter related posts, considering this is an art forum.

    Chatting about critters fine by me, art forum or not. I'm a firm believer in what Albert Einstein said, "Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better"
    Good planets are hard to find - help look after ours.

    For me the general chat section of the forum is a great gift. Here we can add other notes to the music of art. Critters are such a time honored topic for artistic discovery and expression. Please don't be shy about posting more like this.
