Today’s video was just TOO cute not to publish, especially the first 10 seconds.
Just outside of Island Naturals Market there’s a prime place to find birds scavenging, but on one particular day, I noticed a small house sparrow with a broken leg that seemed braver than the others. It got closer than many of them would dare. At the time, I called it a 1-leg bird, but really, it did have 2 legs.
It’s birds like this that inspire me to create quirky characters like the Jagrul bird… Anyway, enjoy this 42-second clip! This house sparrow is pretty adorable.
Me: Hey, little guy! I will call you, 1-legged Jim.
Woman: He’ll come back. He’ll chew that, and then he’ll come back for that little chunk.
Me: Cute. He’ll come back.
Woman: How long have you lived on the Big Island?
Me: Over a year.
Me: Oh, and now he gets all camera shy. So close. So close to the sandwich before. You’ll be back! He’ll be back.
There’s more where that came from! Be sure to check out the wealth of travel videos in the Travel Video category.
