Janey is a trained and licensed songbird rehabilitator. The birds she rehabilitates are usually injured or too young to take care of themselves. This is a story about one of the many birds she rehabilitated.
[pinkie] Sidney came to us as a day-old "pinkie".
[feathers] He thrived under Janey's care.
[cages] He and his brothers were always interested in what we were doing.
[tree] After we released him, he enjoyed the many trees we had on the ranch.
[railing] And he would always visit with us when we were outside.
[table] And entertain us with his antics.

Sidney has gone off to start his own colony. He calls to us occasionally, but he has his own family now.
