    is worth two in the bush. Found this little guy on my lawn this afternoon as I was watering. A high percentage of baby birds don't make it for a number of reasons. Evidently he fell from the nest for whatever reason.

    He was still very much alive but won't last long out of the nest. I will let nature take its course as I will be out of town all next week and won't be around to try to nurse it along.

    Very amazing catch you got there it's very small hopefully it's not dead or injured.
