Post-op Day 16: I had an avian visitor today!
While sitting on the couch working on my next research grant, I heard a chirp chirp noise coming from INSIDE the house. Our puppy of course got super excited and ran over to the bathroom to check out the source of such happy tune. Lo and behold, there was a little bird perched on our glass shower stall. He then found his way over to the light pendant above the sink, and performed an avian tightrope right before my eyes. Happy Spring!
P.S. I am happy to report that he eventually found his way out to the hallway, made rounds in the dining room and perched — what else! — on our dining room light pendant, then checked out our kitchen. After everything deemed satisfactory, he flew out to join his family and the glorious weather outdoors.
