And quite a leap it was! At 7:45 this morning, just a moment after I snapped this, he jumped up and flew about eight feet....directly into the side of the neighbor's house! (oh, ouchie...) But he's okay! As you can see from this movie, he got right up and hopped under a bush. The screechy chirps, very audible at the end, are the parents, yelling at him in a firm but loving way.
And that's it, I suppose. Probably won't see them again. Let's hope they beat the odds and all make it through the summer. Thanks for the experience, guys!
