Artist's Description

Please view large…Everybody needs a little encouragement said the Parrot to the Sparrow….. It is amazing how we do the things we do… After a few hours in the garden and a wheel barrow full of weeds, I was about to tip it on top of what I thought was an old nest… Something inside me said, check inside before you smother it… To my amazement, there were three little sparrows inside… The wind had blown the nest from the tree during the night … For some reason that day I was lead to that spot to empty the garden clippings… I propped the nest up in a near by tree… watched it from a distance for a few hours hoping the parents would come to their aid… the parents did not show…… By this time they were yelling with hunger… I could not bear to leave them and let nature take it’s course, I prepared a syringe and after a bit of a struggle managed to get some food into them. I was not expecting to find them alive the next morning, it was a wonderful sight to have three hungry little mouths greeting me… This is now day 6 and they are growing and learning to fly… my next challenge is to teach them how to feed themselves… Bubbles was curious about the new arrivals… it seemed like she was giving the little sparrow a little bit of encouragement, we all need a little encouragement from time to time…
