On our after supper ride we noticed a bird on the edge of the road. It most likely had been hit by a car. It was kinda flopping around.
Far Guy picked it up. It was a Common Flicker. They sure are beautiful close up. We moved it into the ditch where at least it can die in peace or recover to see another day.
Yes we were tempted to do more for it, but sometimes wildlife is best left alone…except on a highway where someone else could run over it.
