week for the birds...

I opened the garage door to get my bike out a couple of days ago and down plopped a lil bird -- there's an opening in the siding and apparently birdies have chosen to nest there -- the baby just sat on the driveway doing the old eye blink thing, as if to say: wtf?? and the mommy bird flew out landing about 15 feet away and continued to chastise me with all manner of bird threats and bird swearing(I wasn't afraid, they're only sparrows!) -- when I came back from the bike ride, they were both gone -- can parent birds carry their babies by the scruff of the neck (like cats)...or did a neighborhood cat help out?

and then a day or 2 later I came out to find this bird

rather soggy looking and, I guess, trying to dry out on the driveway -- it didn't try to fly away ('nother baby of a somewhat larger variety?) and seemed not at all perturbed when I got close to check it out -- by the time I'd gotten back with the camera, it had hopped into the grass but was willing to pose for a few pics before wandering off into the ground-cover (weeds?) in the background -- haven't seen it since

fun with the birds -- oh yeah!
