Weird Stuff ...

The strangest thing happened yesterday. The two tree swallows that have claimed one of the bird houses have been having to defend it from other tree swallows the last week or so. There has been as many as 8 tree swallows fighting over the same bird house. (Even though there is another empty one 8 feet away~!) Well yesterday there was another big fight and after I noticed a tree swallow on the ground. He wasn't moving and obviously hurt. We decided to leave it alone and hoped it was just stunned or something. Well 3 hours later it was still there and he hadn't moved. I was really upset.

My husband decided that we (he should pick him up and see how injured he was and maybe we could help him. I made him wear gloves ... lol.

We looked him over and we couldn't see any obvious signs of injury so my husband opened his hand. The bird just sat there. Then he fluttered a little bit and landed back on my husbands hand. The next thing you know he just flew away as if nothing had happened. Within seconds his mate was there and 4 other swallows and I swear it looked like they were having a party~!!! LOL

It was very strange. I honestly think my husband has some sort of healing power or something~! lol

So it had a good ending and he is my knight in shining armour. (And the birds!) So that is what went into my store today!

And the layout below shows the size of the frame against a 12x12 inch (3600x3600 pixel) layout.

It is only $1.00 and can be found here or through my store under the Frames category.
