Rescuing Luke

Penobscot, ME (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: This is not a high quality photo, but it is about a little bluejay with a broken wing. We are trying to capture him and get him to the "Avian Haven" in Freedom, Maine. He hops everywhere, and comes out of the woods where he lives/hides to feed with the doves. He is perching on a water bowl here having a drink. Luke is a beautiful boy, his plumage is brilliant, and if we can get him to the Aviary to have his wing set he will live a full life. But he cannot survive without flying in the woods for long, nor could he ever survive the winter. We will try again today to drop a towel over him and take him to this wonderful wild bird sanctuary where he will be restored to full health. My heart aches for him. We are in the midst of a heatwave in Maine, and it is very hard on him, but he is eating and I make sure he has water at all times.

About deepwoods


Enjoy taking photos in the area of Downeast Maine where I live near the shore with my husband and our dog, Drzl, who is one half greyhound and one half rhodesian ridgeback. I am not a professional, I just shoot what looks cool or interesting to me. Thanks for looking!
