#008 Life (#1 Bird A fallen baby sparrow)

I found a fallen baby sparrow in the following place yesterday.

The sparrow was fallen here from nest in our upstairs roof.

It seems that the bird has foot injury.

I moved it to here from the place which we can do barbecue at.

A parent bird come to feed food on the baby bird sometimes.

So the baby bird sing continuously for letting the parent bird know his location.

But some feral cats go back and forth everyday.

AyeYai is worried about these cats attack the sparrow.

So she moved the bird to deck floor of our house.

Now the bird is in new nest on the deck like this picture.

Now the baby bird is fine!

Third report of the experimental garden

It seems the experimental garden is close to collapse.
These lateral buds are wilting.
It's a long shot. The reason is to plant them on grand directly and put them in the sun.
Today is raining, their destiny may be in weather next a couple of days.

I modified the experimental method.
First of all, I planted them in the plastic pot.

And set in shadow area like this.
These are lateral bud of the mini tomato.
