There are a couple of different ways to get up to the 2nd level of the city parking structure, where I park my car. The one I use most often is the main entrance on South Street, currently being torn all to hell & back (and, let’s make this clear…this is NOT one of the nicer hells) by Wisconsin’s ‘other’ season.
Last night, they had torn out the sidewalk leading up to the structure’s main doors. When the construction crews aren’t in the street, you can still get in there by crossing the torn-up street and sneaking in around through the barriers.
Well…they start early. By the time I need to access my car and get to work, they’ve got the construction zone all full of moving equipment.
So I’ve gone to plan B – Use the street entrance to the SSI building, go up the elevator, and cross the alley by means of the skyway.
This morning…there was a bird stuck in the garage side of the skyway. He was frantically beating himself against the glass, certain that there HAD to be a bird-shaped hole he could get through so he could return to the sky.
Poor little thing.
I started by trying to guide his frantic flight through the big open doors in the garage. Nope…he was having none of that, and I probably scared the thing half to death in the attempt. So next, was a careful cornering of the fella and a catch.
He didn’t resist the hands much. Once I cupped his wings, he was quiet while I transported him back to the open side of the garage structure. As soon as I opened my hands, he was gone, back into the skies of his domain.
He didn’t even poop in my hands. I’d say that’s all the thanks I need 😀
