Wow it has been a whirlwind week and yet…I don’t have much to share yet. Tomorrow I have a shift at the art gallery which reminded me that I never wrote about the events of my last docent shift.
Last Friday, I volunteered for the 1-3PM shift, which tends to be slower. I was working on a sketch when I heard a strange clicking noise. I looked up and this guy was just standing there!
Sorry for the blurry picture, but this bird was on the move. It was amazing to watch this bird…he walked in front of a few pieces of artwork and clicked at them, just like a human would remark on their thoughts of a piece.
Then he realized he couldn’t find his way back outside. It was awful. I felt like I couldn’t do anything to help him, so I called animal control to help get the little guy out. Thankfully, they only took ten minutes to arrive and get him out but let’s just say he caused some chaos. I spent the last 40 minutes of my shift spraying down windows with cleaner, picking up bird stuff and trying to get everything back into their proper places. It certainly made for an interesting day!
