1619h (Day 2 of captivity)
Tiny Tim left the nest and disappeared in my jungle of a back garden.
We went on some errands and when we returned he was perched at the top rim of the cage, but when we returned he was gone. I did not irrigate the garden today in case I drench him. It is near impossible finding a little bird in my bushy garden. I just hope that he can hop onto low shrubs.
If Mary was not caring for him, I would have placed him in the big cage, but then she would not have been able to get to him in order to feed him.
I believe that nature have, under normal circumstances, ways of sorting out its own problems.
Tiny Tim has a dedicated mamma, so I just closed all the doors and windows of the house, giving him time to adjust to outdoor living.
I do not expect to see him again, but if I do, I shall keep you posted.
