As regular CFZ-watchers will know, for some time Corinna has been doing a column for Animals & Men and a regular segment on On The Track... particularly about out-of-place birds and rare vagrants. There seem to be more and more bird stories from all over the world hitting the news these days so, to make room for them all - and to give them all equal and worthy coverage - she has set up this new blog to cover all things feathery and Fortean.

Danville Man Finds Birds Nest in Unusual Place

Danville, VA -- Some resilient birds have found a home in a very strange and dangerous place. 

In Dennis Haley's backyard, you just hear the sounds of birds chirping. And those birds need a little extra help. Luckily, as a Danville police officer, helping comes as a natural instinct for Haley. 

"It was very incessant chirping. You could tell they were hungry," he said. 

When Haley heard lost baby birds calling for assistance, he couldn't help but come to their rescue. 

"We made the bug mush and I've got a pair of forceps that I used to feed them," said Haley. 

But how did those birds just sitting in their nest get so turned-around? Well, their home drove off. 

"It was a surprise," said Haley. 

Haley took his Jeep to work Thursday like any other day, then made a stop at Food Lion. 

"I was in the parking lot, putting the groceries in the back of the Jeep. I heard a lot of chirping and started looking around. And it took a second or two, but I found them in the rear wheel well of the Jeep," said Haley.
