Another Little Bird

Photo taken with laptop camera

Sitting here working on my laptop, I heard that dreaded little thud of yet another bird slamming into the glass on the door. It was a little bird similar to the one from last week which was stunned, but eventually revived and took flight from my hands.

Today's story ends differently. I went quickly to pick up the bird as it fell. As I held it in my hands, it opened its beak a few times, extending its tongue before falling completely still. At least it got to be held before it died.
