Bird kiss of life

YOURS (UK) - - Meeting Place -

✒ I just had to put pen to paper after read­ing the re­cent star let­ter about the goldfinch that came back to say thank you after be­ing re­vived. I was in the kitchen when a blue tit crashed into the win­dow. I rushed out­side and it looked dead but I quickly picked it up, put some wa­ter in a dish and put its lit­tle beak in it while hold­ing it in my hand. I gave it a few kisses and kept say­ing, “come on lit­tle fel­low”. After sev­eral min­utes it started rolling its eyes and then I could feel move­ment in my hand, so I opened it, gave it an­other kiss and waited. After sev­eral min­utes sit­ting on my hand it flew off. My hus­band came out­side and I said, “I’ve just given a lit­tle blue tit the kiss of life.”

It was a lovely happy end­ing. Pa­tri­cia Howlett, Nor­wich
