My dog passed in September, and i've been having a really hard time missing her. Today I was out walking our other dogs by our house, and a little wild bird was sitting in a dead sunflower plant next to me, and it let me pick it up and sat on my shoulder for half an hour or so. Being the lunatic I am, we had a pretty good chat, then it left. I just wonder if it wasn't my old friend visiting me, it was such a weird thing to happen. I took lots of photos but I don't know what kind of bird it was. It was the size of a wren, and sparrow-coloured with yellow tail feathers.
