Baby Bunting in Hand

At the end of August, we had about ten young Painted Buntings zipping between feeders and bird baths. One smacked into the sliding glass doors and knocked himself silly. I picked him up to keep him from the dogs and snapped some photos with my cell phone. He was very woozy at first.

 Poor little curled up toes.
  He'd momentarily open his eyes...
 but it wouldn't last long.
 Such a beautiful little bird, even before they get their bright adult plumage.
 
  Starting to straighten out those feet, again.

 I set him on the deck railing so he could rest without my interference.

 I watched him for a while from inside.
 

Something finally startled him and he flew away. Hooray for recovery!

'49

She sits across the gravel parking lot from a feed store I visit. I went to see her up close, recently.


 
 She's obviously sat here for quite a while...

 and probably will for years to come.
