Yeah, I know it sounds weird... So over the summer we foud that our pool has a leak in it, so in late fall we drained the pool, but then we didn't know what to do with it. So we have a big empty pool in our backyard with nocover on it. I just found out that we have a bird in our pool, and the Cardinal has been there since Sunday (i dont know why I wasn't told sooner...) He has been hopping around the pool alot, but I haven't seen him make any attempts to fly away. I can't see his wing well, as he is moving around too much, so I don't know if that is the problem. We put birdseed in the pool, but now what do we do? Can anyone help?
