Seeking the wisdom of a turtle seemed like a great idea in theory. They are, after all, very wise looking creatures. Looking. They only look wise. Turtles are, as evidenced by your experiences here, actually jerks. That is not your fault. There was no way for you to know that this turtle would be a jerk, but here you are, baby bird-less and in the `company of a jerk turtle.
What can you do?
