Lucky Cards Led Us to Gold

That's right. A goldfinch took my friend and I to Placerita Nature Center, the location of California's first gold rush.

That goldfinch was this little bird, the second animal I've found with a leg injury this week—the first one being a bunny with broken legs.

Our Love Perked Him Up

My friend and I had been walking along finding cards to add to the collection we started yesterday.

When it seemed there weren't any more, we continued on up the hill and found one more in a direction we don't normally travel on our daily walks.

After deciding to take that route to "follow the cards," we found the injured bird and decided he was probably the reason we needed to walk that way. 

Once we got a box for him, we took him to Placerita where he will be rehabbed and then released back to where we found him because as the ranger reminded us, "Birds are monogamous." I was so happy. I hope he's okay and that he'll be reunited with his love!
