"Yo! I'm Paulie. Save my baby brother--- he's still stuck up in the nest near the neighbor's fence. Your dogs missed him, and he's all my parents have now. Please! For me and Frankie here. You seem like a descent guy, and afterall, you pulled me out of Tutti's mouth before he munched Frankie the way he did."

### Ten minutes later I did just that, The crushed nest traped him in there alright, and I layed him out on top of the bush on a cardboard strip---without touching him. The next day he was flying around with the parents, and they all hung around the burial site of Frankie and Paulie--by the back shed. A drop of water dripped down on my cheek, and I thought that it was strange because there was no rain in the forecast.

    Seriously, he took about 10 minutes to fade to black, and everytime he moved his beak he spoke to my heart. Funny how what was going on in my imagination had something to do with the truth--that one more bird was really in the nest, and I had that wild-out-of-the-blue' thought--to really check it. There really is a Divine Intervention going-on all the time.
