    I don't know too many men that would have climbed a tree to save a bird! They must have been nice guys. RIP.

    Oh this is so sad, and to think that the poor man's wife witnessed his tragic death! He must have been a kind person to have risked his life, but it is so sad that he was killed.

    I sent a guy up a tree that I had just started dating - because I saw (what I thought was) my cockatiel in the tree. I knew it wasn't my bird when it hopped onto his shoulder for the climb down! I went inside and sure enough, all my birds were fine. The guy was so scratched up and hurt from scaling the tree, I was unable to admit it wasn't my bird for a good five minutes.
    FUN... is a renewable resource!
