When we own a pet, it becomes our duty to look after it and to care for it as if it was part of the family. While some pets are obviously more challenging to look after than others, it’s usually agreed that birds are among the most awkward pets to keep. They are very pernickety and can be quite hard to keep in a good mood if you are unsure of what you are doing.
Birds, though, do tend to appreciate the help more if they get what they want. When one man came across a tiny little baby robin that was in desperate need of food, he decided that it was time to step in and help out. Survival is hard enough as a fully grown adult bird; for a wee baby trying to fend for itself, the likelihood of survival is relatively slim.
In a bid to try and get the little bird into some kind of schedule, though, he does a rather fantastic job of helping it to feed properly. What he does is he goes out and gets a pitchfork, and starts to dig into the dirt, sifting through it to try and find some quality worms for his little bird to eat. As we all know, the early bird catches the worm and for this little robin it does not have to be doing much at all to get a nice meal that day.
He digs up through the ground for it, looking for worms and making sure that his new best buddy can get something to eat without having to try. This allows it to spend more time just enjoying life, instead of having to spend its day digging around and wasting energy looking for food and nutrients.
Watch the video as he teams up and goes hand in hand with his little avian friend to help him find something truly awesome. It’s a very cool story and one that shows you just how selfless some people can be. When we see a bird, most of the time it barely even registers with us. That changes quite quickly, though, when we see just how much they appreciate our help.
So, next time you see a little bird out the back struggling to get the food that it needs, step in and get the rake out and give him or her a helping hand. It’s a small gesture, but one that you should feel pretty damn proud of taking part in. It’s our duty to use our smarts and our power to help little animals survive, and this story shows you how you can help those beautiful little birds on your doorstep!
