    Just one of the remarkable stories of Roy Ivor's works - First printed 1987, by Barbara May Easton (Fur & Feathers), would very much like some contact information for this lady.

The Christmas Spirit - A Bird Story

The following story appeared last year in a newsletter from Fur-Bearer Defenders, a wonderful organization dedicated to ending the cruel animal trapping trade:

Each time Roy Ivor placed the tiny crippled bird on the floor, she toppled over.  In the bird bath, she fell over into the water.  Then Roy Ivor did a remarkable thing.

He took a tiny piece of sturdy material, some cotton batten, and some thread and a needle.  Then he proceeded to make the tiniest pair of sandals you could ever imagine.

When he finished he very carefully pushed the little bird's crooked toes through the sandals' toe holes.  He filled up the gaps with soft cotton batten and fitted them securely around the baby bird's ankles.

Then a wonderful thing happened.  For the first time in her life, the little bird stood up on her own two feet.

She gazed at Roy with bright adoring eyes, and from then on followed this wonderful man faithfully everywhere.

Just before Christmas, when Roy was 99, she died.

"Such a quiet hush that day throughout the forest." But by Christmas, the woods once again rang out with the song of wild birds, free and beautiful.  An entirely appropriate tribute to this brilliant and dedicated "friend."

From a story by Barbara May Easton (Fur & Feathers)
