I've been watching the Decorah camera for the past 4 years, Noreen. Thanks for the Fraser Point site! I love watching the eagles.
When I was a little girl, about 8 I think, after a bad storm that blew a nest from a tree, I found a baby sparrow. It was the only one that survived. My DGM gave me a 1-pound Maxwell Coffee can (the metal kind that was opened by a key that you twisted to remove the lid...am I dating myself?). She lined it with a piece of flannelette. I fed that baby bird canned dog food with a pair of tweezers and it lived. My DGM would replace the flannelette as needed to keep the "nest" clean. It got feathers, grew up and was very healthy. My mom made me put it out in the yard so it could learn to fly. Other sparrows came and actually taught it to fly and after a few days it flew away. I was pretty sad when it went, but I felt good about saving it.
