On Monday dad found a baby starling.

He gave it to me.

I looked after it really well.

Dad put it in a box.

I put some water and food in the box and then some grass.

Then we heard the mum and dad crying so we released it. The mum and dad fed it and now it is living in our bush.

I felt good because in the end dad said I was ready for a pet.
