Anyway. This isn't a makeup or nail polish post. This post is about a little bird. My husband found him a few days ago. He fell out of his nest. We kept debating on going and getting him, but honestly, I'm not really sure what to do with a baby bird. What do you feed it? How much? How often? Where do you keep it? Etc. Momma bird was usually close by on the fence and once we saw her come back and feed him (her?) we just kept an eye on him.
Can you see him?
A little closer ...
How about a close up?
Ugly little bugger ain't he? Skinny and he looks like he has jowls!
I have no children or pets so this is as close as I've gotten recently to having someone/thing to show people, so you get lots of pictures today! Here he was running away from me. I had gotten a little too close.
Another close up, thanks to my new camera. He's kinda scrawny. If you can imagine a normal leaf shriveled up and fallen, you can see how little he is! I asked my husband how he can tell he's recently born and he said it's because he's got a fuzzy butt! Apparently butt feathers are the last to grow in. Who knew?
He does blend well though! Poor guy. We don't seem to have any stray/loose cats in our neighborhood. I hear coyotes are out here, but not in the "city." Hopefully he does ok. His momma is doing well and she's usually standing guard.
We can't find a nest so I have no idea if he's the only one or the only one we found to have survived a fall. He is sitting under a large tree in our yard, so I'm assuming there is a nest up there.
Either way, that's all I have for ya! Little baby bird. Fingers crossed he does ok.
