Stockton found this little bird under a tree. I guess he had been pushed out of the nest. Hopefully his mom is nearby watching over him. We think it’s a wren of some kind.

Guess what we found in the finch cage this morning? The female, creamy, has begun to lay more eggs. Needless to say, we don’t want her to hatch out any more birds right now. So, we took the egg away. Her six fledglings are growing rapidly and eating on their own. If you’re interesting in getting a pair of zebra finch, use the contact form to let us know.
