Over the next couple of weeks the lady would come by the cage four or five times a day always speaking softly and making sure the little wren had enough food and fresh water.
Then came the day the bandages were removed. The wing was very stiff from being bound for so long but still it felt very good to be able to move it even a small amount.
The lady then said, "We are going to move you to a new home where you will lots of room to try out your damaged wing”. The lady then picked up the little wren and took her outside.
It was the first time she had seen the sun since her accident and the warmth cheered her up immediately. Looking around she saw a large yard surrounded by a high fence but open to the sky. The yard was filled with small shrubs, flowers and a couple of trees.
Throughout the area were numerous birdhouses of different sizes and at various heights off the ground. There were also birdbaths, a small pond and a variety of feeding stations.
"I think you will like it a lot better out here” said the lady as she stroked the little wren’s head for one last time and placed her on the ground next to one of the birdhouses.
It was then the little wren noticed that she was not the only bird in the yard. There was a duck, some gulls, a crow, a goose and a lot more. Even though she appeared to be the smallest one there, the little wren still felt very safe.
“Now then, what is all the ruckus about? The voice soothed, “we are going to take good care of you here and you will be well in no time at all”.
The human removed the little wren from the cage and held the bird up to her chest. With her other hand the lady began to softly stroke the little wren's head while she continued to talk in a low and easy tone. The little wren felt the warmth from the lady's body and although she was very scared, she felt safe.
