Poor Club Footed Birdy

This is our little robin baby. His family keeps trying to attack us as we try to help him. He's not that great at flying yet, and apparently has something wrong with his feet. We can't get him to uncurl his toes the right way and he can't hold onto branches. I think he might die. We fed him and held him for awhile last night, and at the end, he would just sit on my gloved hand. He balanced with his tail. He's so cute, but I put him over the fence so that Eamon, our dog, or a neighborhood cat wouldn't get him in our yard. Poor baby.

So sad......we have a little one-legged grasshopper that lives in the flowerpot on my front porch. The kids talk to him daily.
