Today i got a call from someone who had found a bird that was hurt badly and needed to be rescued.
i left everything i was doing and drove to rescue the birdie. i immediately called @owl.whisperer to tell her what was going on and that i needed her help.
as soon as i had the birdie, i went straight to ileana’s house. we gave the birdie some electrolytes to keep him hydrated.
unfortunately the birdie passed away fairly quickly.
i thank you ileana, with all my heart. also thank you so much @teresaquess for calling me (and thinking of me!)
breed: common pauraque aka capacho #ripbirdie#wetried#alwaystry#rescue#commonpauraque this is the hard part of rescuing. these things happen.

Being a novice at this insta lark i’m aware these pictures were (hopefully) a story. can i figure out how to archive it? negative captain. so i’m making them into a little mini post. i’ll post some more in the next few days about subitising which i crudely referred to as the ability to ‘see numbers’. a more informative definition is the ability to recognise a small group of objects/a number without counting. take a die as a classic example. the formation of dots is instantly recognisable without each dot having to be individually counted. a very early/old study circa 1988 showed that if a baby saw 1, 2 and 3 as dot pictures, just like the faces on a die and was then played 3 drumbeats it would look to the number 3 ‘picture’ so to speak. subitising is a very early and innate ability. it also is an essential part of developing number sense in early years by helping to relate numbers to actual items or groups of items. it is not uncommon that young children learn to count by rote but do not really understand the meaning behind what they are doing. by looking at groups of items, children can start to develop an understanding of how a number is made up: for example, seven dots could be a set of three dots and a set of four dots, or a set of six dots and one dot. this understanding of part-part-whole relationships helps children to separate and combine numbers and accelerates understanding of addition and subtraction. it is a skill that is argued about professionally as to whether it should be taught discretely or to develop by ‘osmosis’ but i’m all for a little extra help along the way. can’t do any harm right? i’ll post some example ‘how to’s. #channelmum#subitising#toddlersofinstagram#homeeducation#priming#maths#education#preschool#preschoolteacher#fingercounting#dice#tryingtohelp#sharethelove#keeptrying#instanovice#fail#alwaystry#foundationmaths#eyfsteacher#eyfs#numbers#numbersense
Don’t look too far up, just set your goals high but take one step at a time. sometimes you don’t think you’re progressing until you step back and see how high you’ve really gone. 🙌😎💪
the best view comes after the hardest climb!
I captured a butterfly today 😁😉
have a nice day
