Sometimes nature never stops wondering us

Date Posted: 2003-06-28

Chosun Yara, a 61-year-old owner of a teahouse in the northern part of Okinawa heard a thud against a window of his establishment one day last month. When he and his daughter went to investigate, they discovered a colorful halcyon had crashed in their window and was now laying seemingly lifeless on the ground. They first thought that the bird was dead. They took the bird into the house anyway, and noticed it was still breathing. They dipped a piece of cotton in water and tried to make the bird drink. They also put some bread crumbs on her beak.

After a few hours the bird came to life and sat on Yara's hand. He took the bird outside in order to release it. It flew to a nearby tree, sang a little bird's song and disappeared a moment later into the forest. And that, they thought, was the last of it. The next morning though, when Yara opened the window, the bird flew right in and sat on his hand, and what's more, began singing.

Yara says the bird has come back every day since. It sits on his hand and sings a short song, and then flies back into the jungle. Halcyons are usually extremely shy birds, but this one has obviously decided that Yara is a man worth of her trust, and has decided to show him and his family a little bit of nature's wonders.
