CLINT IN A TIZZ
Hollywood star upset by tiny bird tree find
PALS of CLINT EASTWOOD say the Tinseltown star has recently been “in a right tizz” after he found a baby bird at the bottom of a tree in the garden. The star of movies such as A Fistful of Dollars, Dirty Harry and Every Which Way But Loose was out playing when he spotted the chick at the base of a tree. “He looked up the tree but he couldn’t see the nest it must have fell out of,” said Eastwood’s close friend and Bronco Billy co-star SONDRA LOCKE. “It didn’t have no feathers on, and he was all worried the cat would get it if he just left it.”

Mrs Eastwood also cautioned her son, 88, against climbing the tree in case he ripped his best trousers.
The Outlaw Josey Wales star was still worried about the bird, and decided to give it something to eat. “I put it out a saucer of milk with bread in but it didn’t want it,” he told the channel. “It was just sat there squawking at me with its yellow beak.”

“Lee said I shouldn’t of tried to give it milk and bread as it was too small and instead I should of give it chopped up worms like what its mam would do,” Eastwood added.
