Starling birds take flight

So...yesterday, when my dad and I got home from the gym, I found a bird in our yard, its left-wing seemed to be broken, it couldn't fly. So we took it inside, put it in a big box with some birdseed and water, made a little nest outta pine straw found in the yard, and we're keeping it until its wing gets better (Don't worry, I've done this before). It turned out to be a starling. So I named it Silver (Starling Silver). And it inspired this haiku outta me. :) I’ve always said that I could never even attempt a haiku...that too many words ran through this plethora of thoughts in my head...here is my first attempt at it...tell me how I did?
THANK YOU FOR READING!!! 😄

i love your haiku .. it fits the form perfectly and you have added another dimension of rhyme to it ... your personal touch .. i love it ... i am more of a crows and ravens man me self ... but starlings are darlings aren't they ;) too cool to learn that you are precticed in the art of wing mending Nix ..i think that's pretty divine ma'am ... and you and your Da go to the gym together .. wow! I'm lucky to get a call from my kids .. God bless you :))))))) your haiku is uplifting .. love the action, scene and spiritual reflection in closing line ... nice one says i! and thanks for sharing the background story as well!

Much better than my first attempt at haiku. I love the backstory you shared as well. I like the words "Warm winter sun." I don't tend to associate warm and winter together. However, the sun is the only warm thing in the winter. It gives off a very peaceful and optimistic feeling, and I think these words help with that. Great job!!!

Thank you, Kim!!! :)
Well done Nix ... these are not easy to write. You did good.
I think it is good for a poet to experiment with different formats ... not all will work, but it is good to try.

My yard is filled with starlings at the moment.

Keep safe ... keep writing.
