"Birds of a feather flock together"—unless the bird is Fritz—a common grackle hatchling that had been abandoned by her bird family and was on the brink of death when Fate intervened. Fritz was cold and featherless as she huddled under the sweeping branches of a spruce tree. By chance, a couple found Fritz and took her in to care for, and eventually release back into the wild. Never did they imagine how a tiny creature would have such a dramatic impact on their lives.
Fritz's adventures provide a rare insight into the day-to-day antics and behavior of a wild bird in a domestic setting.The story reveals astounding aspects of a bird's instincts, personality and intelligence; impossible to observe in the wild. Readers of this unbelievable (but true) story may never again view a bird— particularly a common grackle—without thinking of Fritz.
