Bird by Scurron

So, our guest found this little fellow out in the open and decided to bring it back home (mind you, the bird doesn't know how to walk/jump/fly and parts of its body are still featherless so it would've certainly died in the hot sun) Now, it refuses every type of food I give to it, but it does drink water (and pressed fruit juice, watermelon in particular) so I think I haven't been trying hard enough to find the right kind of thing.

I don't know what kind of bird it is; it doesn't look like anything I've seen around here. Does anybody recognize its species? Or do you have any tips for me to make this little guy survive? I've called our national bird rehab center, but sadly they have nothing useful in this part of the country... they did name me a few contacts but none of them are open until tomorrow.

I've been googling and running around this little guy for half a day now, so no "uh maybe a birding forum would be more suited for this" comments, I'm begging of you.

Thanks.

Uploading this because I want to ask people in the forums about it. I don't recognize the species and have no idea what it eats; it refuses everything I give to it except for water (over which it gets kind of over excited and tries to jump at the spoon) Read the thread for more info
Loading...
Actually the title should in reverse order because the mosquitoes are trying to EAT ME AT THIS VERY MOMENT but my reflexes are too much for their puny kind. Suffer like my skin has suffered because of you, you tiny insectoid vampires.

But anyways, I feel like writing something and this is always handy.

First of all, my job at the graveyard has become somewhat... annoying. I do read/write/draw a lot more than usually in my free times, and my English skills have somewhat improved, which is awesome, but the sheer stupidity of some of the people coming inside makes me just wanna scream at them to get out. Like, there is a giant sign, in black and red, saying that the entry was ten kunas (and it doesn't even require language skills to figure that out, only a bit information on the country they're visiting) and some people just.. ugh. I greet them politely, and they don't even respond back (mostly they're non-english speakers..) and just walk past me even though I have clearly made myself present and am sitting five centimeters from the "ticket price" sign. They then say, after a minute or so of awkward silence and me staring holes into their head, in their language "I'll only have a look" and stay there, staring inside from the fricking doorway. Like what the hell am I supposed to say?? I can't exactly shoo them off from there and have them complain later on...

Also I just hate, HATE it when people complain to me for not speaking their language. Like bitch, if you can't learn basic English, which is the official language of tourism and pretty much everything these days, as far as I know, then why the hell should I bother even uttering a word of a language spoken only inside the borders of the country you're coming from? And how the fuck am I supposed to show you where a location on google maps is, when all of your maps are in YOUR FREAKING LANGUAGE AND I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT YOU'RE SEARCHING FOR. *takes a few deep breaths* There are a few little gems, though, like British tourists generally interested in the history, Americans that think that everything here is 1000 years old (and who surprisingly help me a lot with my pronunciation haha) Germans giving unnaturally large tips, and those adorable ones of every nationality that absolutely fail at Croatian but at least bother to show interest in the place they're visiting.

Peeps. Please, I beg of all of you in the behalf on every person in the services sector, be a good tourist. Respect the locals and their laws and show a bit of interest because you not only represent yourself and your mother, but your whole country when you go somewhere, and sadly, by leaving a bad first impression you kind of destroy the reputation of your country as a whole and create nasty stereotypes.

To prevent this, I recommend leaving a lot of tips to everyone. Tips are always awesome :dummy:

Another good kind of news? I started growing out my hair, starting from today. I literally need to go through the phase of having long hair before I get into my thirties and start going bald :XD: I'm currently stuck with a hairstyle like this www.victorhugohair.com/2063-sh… so it'll take a while, but since my hair grows rather fast I think I'll be where I want in a year and half or so :P I can't wait for the in between phases and covering my hair under a beanie yay .___.

So that's all for now! I hope your summers are doing well, and I really, really hope you're free from obnoxious people AND mosquitoes

Ello people who stumble across this dusty corner of dA :iconshaplz:

My name is Nikola, but you can call me Nick for simplicity purposes. Most of the time I should be studying (math hates me), but instead I'm hanging around the net and having fun with talking to people.
I'm a student of fine arts in Dubrovnik, Croatia, a kind of backwaterish place in the middle of Europe. I hope to move out one day and see the world! :dummy:
As said, I do traditional art, but I love spending my time with digital paintings and cartoony stuff as well. Along with that, I'm currently struggling with my lazy ass self to write a story and do some more art.

If you're already here, don't be afraid to say hi! ^^ I'm a nice guy once you get to know me. (at least that's what I'm being told =P people just keep throwing coal on the fire that is my ego)
I don't bite.
Unless you're food.
But even in that case you should be relatively safe because, hey this is the net and I can't possibly find you! :la:


*****

Some guys from my reality have dA accounts! Lick their shoes and give them llamas!
