i amIt was morning in the valley, and I knew it was pouring outside and all the water was ice. The birds were frantically feeding on all the seeds; A group of around 30 people visit here often. When I went out to feed them, I saw a goldfinch huddled there. Was minutes away from death!
My father and I brought the bird inside. He won’t open his mouth to drink. We began to worry, so we piled him in a warm blanket. There was still a chance he could live, and that’s when he started drinking. He was really thirsty so we got him a dropper and some warm water, and I looked up how to save a frozen bird. I was afraid that he might be in pain. He was very gentle, small and fragile.
We looked into his dark black eyes. He wore a red mask and had a light brown and dark brown body. I wanted him to stay with us. He started to stretch and tried his best to make his wings flutter – all our hopes went to the sky.
As she tried to turn around, my family gathered around her. I held her in my arms, and she suddenly fell into a deep sleep. All our excitement was gone. His spirit was now free.
