This is..... Birdman! He, or she, is a brand new baby chick. At the school where Alison worked, for some reason an incubator was brought in. Long story short, eggs turned into baby chicks and much cuteness ensued. She brought one of the little guys home the other night so that her son could check him out, and Justin, being nine and all, aptly named him.... BIRDMAN.
Birdman hung out for the night in our bathtub with a warm cardboard box and a tub full of wood chips. He seemed intent to hop around a lot and enjoyed flopping in his food bowl more so than actually eating. He chirped a lot and woke me up a few times in the night, but that's ok. The cute little bugger went back to the school the next morning.
