After leading an entire country what does an ex-president do in her or his spare time?

Well, it you’re U.S. President George W. Bush you start painting cats and world leaders. If you are former Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi you record an album of Elvis Presley covers.

And what has former Costa Rican President Laura Chinchilla (2010-2014) been doing the past two months (aside from tweeting, a lot)? Adopting a baby bird.

From Chinchilla’s Facebook page:

When I returned home from supporting the Costa Rican national team in Brazil, I was surprised not only to find my husband and son waiting for me at the airport, but also a new member of the family. His name is Baby Charlie.

According to the Facebook post, the girlfriend of Chinchilla’s son found Baby Charlie in the middle of the road where it had fallen from a tree. The family is now caring for the baby chick, which followers of Chinchilla’s Facebook page have identified as a clay-colored thrush, the national bird of Costa Rica.

Since his Facebook debut, Baby Charlie has been a continued feature on Chinchilla’s page:

They feed him

Así se alimenta Baby Charlie. Gracias a todas y todos los que nos han dado sus consejos de cómo tratarlo. Tomamos nota de muchos de ellos. Aún no sabemos qué especie de ave es. ¿Alguien que lo sepa?
