Went out back with dogs. I looked at garden. Big dog was by the fence barking at neighbor. I went over and shushed her.
As I walked back, a bird flittered by me and landed on a fence. It was a baby learning to fly..
I thought I could get passed it without causing panic. I was wrong.
It tried to fly away from me landing in the grass 20+ yards away.
My dog Sadie ran and grabbed it. Dead in less than a second. A male red winged blackbird was flying in and out of the encounter. Sadie killed a baby bird. I'm sad. Nothing to do now.
