Baby Bird

About 10 days ago early one morning there was an almighty rucus between magpies and a Male Blackbird, apparently the magpie had snatched a fledgling from the blackbirds nest and after being harrassed by the daddy bird had dropped the youngster in our garden! I took a close look at him and he was cut around the beak and seemed to be stunned from the fall, but after a day or two he'd healed up well.
So there was no option for it but to protect the little one from dogs, cats and birds until he was ready to fly, daddy bird was extremely diligent in feeding the wee one and today I'm happy to say he took flight after daddy bird..but he did leave us one cheeky picture!
cute, isn't he?
