Flight Lesson...
With Spring, we get baby birds testing out those little wings. Sometimes, those first flights are... less than perfect (LOL!) Like the youngster who hadn't quite figured out his steering, quite yet!

My husband and I were in the living room, watching something on TV, when we heard a *thump* on the glass pane in our front door. Turned to see something falling, and heard a softer *thump* on the ground.
"Whoa, was that a bird?"

"I.. I think so, lemme go and check.."
and I open the door to hear some loud bird chatter. I didn't see any bird on the ground at first, so I thought maybe it had already recovered and got into one of the trees. I was turning to go back in when I saw a flutter of movement at my feet.!. A clearly juvenile bird (didn't have all his adult feathers grown in yet, still had that somewhat awkward baby bird shape...) was flapping and struggling to get to it's feet. It stopped a moment, then let out a LOUD alarm chirp!
Now, the adult birds in the low tree nearby had been watching and chattering, but at the panicked call from Jr., it was time for action! As I was trying to see how the little one was doing, I am suddenly getting dive-bombed from two directions by the parents of the little guy! :o Swooping low over my head, scolding, and doing their best to run me off, LOL (while Jr. hops clumsily onto a low branch in a bush, then up a little higher...)
So... I duck back into the house, chuckling to my husband
"It's all right. Mommy and daddy got this. Jr.'s just fine..." :lol:


when I went outside later, the little guy wasn't on the ground or in the bush any more, and the parents were going about the usual business of eating up seeds and looking for bugs. So it seems, all was fine 8)
Seriously, I do love Spring! The cutest things can happen! :mrgreen:

The question isn't who is going to let me; it's who is going to stop me.
