Crowd and a Sunset's image

While walking down the road he encountered a crowd of people.All were standing around an object on the ground he couldn't make out.Agitated voices were floating through the air and a sense of confusion and urgency was there... Wondering what happened,  he slowly inched forward.Not sure what the situation was. Maybe someone got hurt? An accident? A lost child? He still couldn't see what was on the ground.Just the moving crowd, arms,legs,waving hands.Colorful blobs against the amber colored sky where the sun was about to set.It had been a wonderful day and he was dreading to end it on an unpleasant note.But curiosity won him over and he finally had reached the cluster of people who surrounded a tiny bird on the ground.Everyone was discussing what to do with it. Everyone  knew better than the next person.A child had found the fledgling first and on calling his mother a crowd had started to gather. What to do? How to do it? Where did it fall from? Was it safe to touch? Or would the mommy bird refuse to take it back ?? To feed or not to feed? The man crouched down in front of the bird very carefully not to scare it and realised that the small one was no more. While everyone was discussing what to do, the little soul had flown away. Back to where it had come from. Probably right  into the stunning sunset that took place just now.
