And Yet Another
We sat together for maybe five minutes. The fact that a stunned bird let me hold him wasn't so unusual. What took my breath away happened after he'd gotten over the shock and regained his senses. Bird fluttered to test his wings and then flew off my hand...and then came right back to sit on my finger! He did this three times! Motionless as well as breathless, I waited while he gained confidence. Finally, he flew off into the trees, no doubt with stories to tell his brethren.
Yet another close encounter story for me.
