All the birds have come again,
All the birds together.
Hark the warbling, whistling, singing,
Every bird has music bringing,
All the world with song is ringing.
Welcome to the springtime.
This poor baby house finch fell from the nest this morning. I couldn't believe *she* (not sure of the gender) was still alive after quite a fall to a rough outdoor mat on concrete. She was still breathing so I put on some soft gloves and placed her gently back in her nest. I hope it was an accident on Momma bird's behalf as this little one looked very healthy and in tact. Keep this little one in your thoughts that she may one day leave the nest through flight of her own wings.
UPDATE: Sad news to report. An hour and a half later, the baby bird was on the ground again and this time, not breathing. So perhaps the momma knew something wasn't just right and she wouldn't flourish. We gave the baby a gentle send off with lots of love...
