This is Petey

… also known as Peanut. He’s a baby wren. My kind-hearted friends Jeremy and Leila have been caring for him since Sunday. Poor little guy is the sole survivor after the nest where he and his 4 brothers lived was accidentally bumped by a plumber. Petey was saved by a long black hair that was wrapped around his leg and stuck in the insulation where his mama had built their nest. Monday night I helped Leila feed him a couple of pieces of softened dog food and some water. They’ve also been giving him raw meat, bugs and worms. Petey is growing fast and getting more feathers everyday.

Go, Petey! You can do it! Keep fighting!

Anyone else have the song “I’m a Survivor” running through your head?
