At 1st I thought it was one of those realistic looking toy.
My curiosity got the better of me and I approached it to check it out.
The kingfisher flinched but it seems helpless and could not move or flap it's wings.
"Must be hurt" I thought. All birds will try their best to get away from humans unless they are incapacitated.
I saw some town council employees pruning the trees nearby. Could they have injured the bird while cutting down the leaves.
"Maybe it is a nestling" my wife said.
"Better not touch it!" I said cowardly.....(bird flu was on my mind)
Anyway, my wife was so annoyed with me trying to take pictures of the bird instead of helping it.
By the time I returned (about 30 minutes later), the bird was gone!
I hope the "cat lover" auntie that lives next to where the bird was found has rescued it.
