One for Animal Lovers

We had House Martins nesting up in the eves but during the hot spell the nest dried out and fell to the ground. There were two chicks, one was dead and the other in a bad way. My singing daughter rescued it , force fed it and nurtured it to adulthood. Here they are , the day before she released it back into the wild.

Thats one of the loveliest videos I have ever watched Alan. A beautiful voice to go with a very touching story, what a thrill to have that breed of bird sitting on your shoulder. I wonder if it will come to her outside if she puts her hand up like that. I've saved the youtube link it won't be the last time I watch.

Thanks all. Zolene has always rescued little animals , the one before the bird was a little squirrel but it died, so she is very happy with the way the House Martin rescue turned out , let's hope it learns to fend for itself before migration time.

I've watched it 4 times now, it is so beautiful to see the relationship between the girl and the bird.
