09:27 am - Weird morning.
There are some Starlings that have made a nest inside one of the dryer vents on the second story wall of my building. This is background information.

Cara and I noticed something sticking out of the vent yesterday morning and were wondering what it could be. Cara suggested it might be a dead baby bird. I thought so too. As we stood there, the mother bird kicked it out of the vent and it fell on the ground. It was indeed dead. We buried it under a leaf under a tree.

Later that day, I went to get food while Cara went to my house to await said food. She happened to notice another baby bird, which I named Poseidon and was perhaps 4 or 5 days old, lying in the same spot as the old. This bird was very much not dead. After some deliberation, we took it inside and tried to call animal rescue. However, every place was closed.

As the phone calls continued, I went to look and see if there was a way to return it to the nest. This was not possible, however, it was possible that there was another baby bird in the same spot. In this case, possible means that there indeed was another baby bird. I named him Odysseus. We took him in with his brother/sister. We then went on a field trip to get bird formula having already purchased a bird cozy and a syringe earlier.

We are now taking care of two baby Starlings...they poop a lot. However, we will give them to a care provider later today. I'm going to miss them though.

The End.

Just the seven. "Uh-oh. The Starlings have started to move."
