    Lately we had baby doves and robins hurt in our yard (beyond repair). This morning our neighbors were coming over to learn how to take care of our ducks while we are on vacation. We spot this bird down in the ditch. Never seen one like before, It's wings were out and it's feet were behind him. I run inside and try to call around for a wild bird rescue. Found one in the next town over. We put it in a box with a towel. We drive 20 minutes and give it to them. They tell us it's a Flicker, in the woodpecker family and it should make a full recovery.

    Yeah.... we were actually able to save and give back to wild life.
