Block of the day--
Quilter: Jeanne Esmond
Artist: Jane Miller
An inexperienced Chickadee mom built her nest on a branch that straddled the sidewalk in front of my house. One day, one of the chicks fell out of the nest onto the sidewalk and disappeared. My big boy Sandy was rolling something around in his big mush. I told him to drop it and a Chickadee fell out onto the ground. It was wet, but otherwise unharmed.
Sandy thought that the chick was his very own fuzzy toy and was not happy when I put it up on a fence post where he could not get it. The chick kept trying to fly, but each time it would fall to the ground with a thump.
I put the chickadee back three or four times before it was able to fly away with its mom.
During this entire time Sandy was bouncing around trying to reclaim his prize and the Chickadee mom was dive-bombing me trying to rescue her chick!
