I came across this injured bird today (Eurasian blackbird) on the middle of a highway while driving; I couldn’t immediately stop so made a U-turn to pick it up. Hope it survives and will do my bit there but the main takeaway point really is that we need to do this more often – and I am sure many people would do exactly the same. By the way this is not bragging as I have passed injured birds in the past trying to excuse myself because of the distance driven or comfort myself thinking the bird may well survive etc.. A life is a life and doing one’s best to protect an animal even by placing it at the side of the road is better than doing nothing. So thought sharing this may be helpful.
