The video below tells an unusual story of a starling which was named Klinger. Klinger was found by a lady in a smashed egg and was taken in even though he had a slim chance of surviving without his mother. The lady who found him though she should return him to a nest nearby, she could not find which particular nest he fell from. She decided to incubate him by herself against the advice of professionals who said the bid would die. She built him an incubator and by the next day, Klinger was still fighting for his life. For two weeks, Klinger had to be fed every 20 minutes every day with a feeding tube. The lady did not relent on her sacrifice but was bent on keeping him alive at all costs.
The Starling did not miss a single meal in these two weeks and was strong even though he had not opened his eyes. He kept growing every day and was stronger every day and in no time, he started getting fuzzy and was finally developing feathers. Klinger was also getting bigger, and his eyes finally opened. He kept eating regularly, and soon he began to chirp, and there was finally hope that he would make it.
A few weeks passed, and the bird has almost grown all his feathers and was beginning to look more like his species with the dark feathers with white spots on the wings. He also learnt how to feed himself and didn’t need to be fed through a tube anymore, and he began to learn how to fly. Klinger also learnt how to take his bath and loved to shower so many times in one day in the bathroom sink. Klinger also learnt how to play with toys and is seen here playing with his orange ball.
In a short while, Klingler learnt to speak, and he is seen in the video asking a bird if he is a good bird. The lady who rescued Klinger wanted to release him into the wild, but she discovered that it would not be possible as he was raised a single bird and was not taught the basic tricks that could help him to survive in the wild. Klinger is a year old now and still lives with his caretaker who found and raised him.
