Saving a Baby Robin

A few nights ago Scott came home and saw a baby robin on our lawn. The robin appeared to be hurt, and was struggling to hop around to safety, as he was too young to fly.

After deciding that a night on our lawn would surely turn the poor little creature into a midnight snack for a hungry raccoon, Scott suggested we take him to Salthaven.

It turned out to be the right decision, as they quickly assessed that not only was his left leg broken, but he had a cat or dog bite on his back as well.

Samantha was very happy to be part of the rescue team and got to sit up front on our drive out with the bird in a basket on her lap.
