:camera: This photography is taken by me



Os presento a mi vencejo,
lo recogí ya crecidito, con un mes mas o menos,
es un ave totalmente insectivora,
y es muy dificil encontrar gran cantidad de insectos diariamente,
asi que me informé sobre su alimentacion...
y lo alimenté con pienso de gato y agua para esponjarlo,
es increible la fuerza que tiene en sus "garritas"
tras dos semanas de crianza,
ayer noté que se queria marchar,
queria salir de su caja-nido "rascandola"
y me rechazaba la comida.

Sus alas ya tenian el tamaño adecuado,
ya estaba preparado para volar,
asi que ayer por la tarde
fuí a un sitio muy alto de mi pueblo,
para ponerlo en libertad,
y que emprendiera su gran vuelo...
batia sus alas con fuerza en mis manos,
estaba deseoso de saltar...

Y lo consiguió!!:clap:
sobrevoló el cielo ,
era increible ver como volaba sin haberlo hecho antes,
su batir de alas fué un regalo para mí.

Es un ave muy peculiar,
me puse muy contenta verlo volando un rato muy largo,
hasta que lo perdí de vista...
sé que ahora esta surcando los cielos, y pronto emigrará,
quizás el año que viene vuelva para hacerme una visita...

:damphyr: Vuela alto vencejo!! a traves de lagos, de montañas, de arboles...!!!!

Preciosa fotografía y adorable historia (:
Hace unos años, en verano, en mi calle me encontré un vencejo que se había caído por la terrible calor que hacía, además de que estaba en un lugar donde pasaban los coches y no quería que lo atropellaran. Lo cogí y lo subí a mi casa, le di de beber y lo tuve toda la tarde hasta que empezó a anochecer, entonces fui a la ventana de mi habitación, donde tengo una panorámica muy alta, y lo solté viendo como se iba volando junto a los suyos (: :heart:

que feliz me hace esta historia que me cuentas,
hay gente que cree que estan heridos,
pero si son adultos y caen al suelo hay que hacer justo lo que tu hiciste,
es un gesto muy bonito:hug:s gracias por compartirlo... adoro las aves...

Several years ago I found one of them and bred it in my flat. Regrettably it died before flying away.

He flew near the ground for some meters, then he raised so high in the sky that I couldn't see him anymore =)

I'm happy for him and a bit sad because I miss him a lot ^__^
