Yesterday, I saw a bird in distress. It was spinning in circles on the floor and flapping its wings unable to move its neck. I was not sure what to do or who to call. All I wanted was for the bird to be okay. I tried calling several places with no luck. When I finally got in touch with someone (311) they told me help will be on the way. It has been hours and they still have not arrived. Sadly the bird is long gone. I believe it passed from shock.
