Subject: [CHAT] Story for the birds

> We had a bird thing at work today. A white-eyed vireo--beautiful little
> bird that over-winters in our neighborhood--crashed into one of our
> glass front doors.
> First we knew of it was when one of our CAD operators, on her way to
> physical therapy for multiple fractures of leg bones [there's a moral
> here--don't ride horses unless you're a professional jockey and only
> then if heavily insured], spied it sitting on the front patio in a
> decidedly dazed condition.
> She called her cellmate on her cell phone, he's a sensitive young
> gentleman named Timothy, who went out and sat beside the dazed and
> dumbfounded bird [while feverishly trying to identify it in his Audubon
> Field Guide] until the bird came to its senses and flew away, about 30
> minutes after the the initial trauma as near as any of us could tell.
> We did not dock Timothy's pay for goofing off, despite my
> recommendation that we should.
