In the Nest

DAY 20: Starling Fledgling Right before Leaving the Nest

I was wrong. This little guy was hiding from me. I heard him chirping for mom up in the rafters of the house, but mom starling couldn't find him. It eventually found its way up into the storage loft above my garage where I had a fun time tracking it down amongst all the junk up there. At first he skittered away from me, but then, started coming toward me when I shined a flashlight its way. I eventually caught him and took a few pictures and then waited out near the nest where mom quickly showed up. The two started talking to each other so I tossed the youngster up in the air and it flew away over the hedge into the neighbor's yard with mom following closely.
