Could it be .... ???
Vespers Sparrow is busy gathering nesting materials this morning. Squirrels were eating pumpkin seeds.
And then .... A Robin! *QUITE* the handsome fellow so I called out to him: "Hi Barry!" All the Robins are now Barry to me. LOL! But this guy ... He stopped his walk through the grass and looked at me.
Hmmmm. "Barry? Is that you???" I then made some sounds (like kissing) I would make when approaching him while he was our guest. Would you believe it? This Robin started to come closer! Ooooooo! Could he actually be OUR Barry!?!?!?!?
(Barry was the Robin who lived in our home for 363 days before being released following his recovery from a car accident.)
"Barry? How nice to see you! Barry is it you?" The Robin ran up to me within 4 ft. and we looked at one another for several minutes. He then gave me a little Robin chuckle and went back to his business.
Now I can't say 100% if it was OUR Barry. Barry was never banded or tagged in any way to identify him after his release to the wild. But ... it would be nice to believe this encounter was with a guest who is now free and happy! 8-)
