The Fludgling

Fludge (verb) - to accidentally fledge.

I recently took a cruise vacation in South America. While I wade through the piled up "pays the bills" work and photos to edit, I share with you "The Fludgling."

The peeping was close - very close. But, WHERE on earth was that bird? I looked in the trees high and low. I took a step back to look harder; I looked down when I did. And, there was little Fludgie. He looked too small to already be out of the nest but I soon saw a parent near by.

Note to birder self and others, look down more often!

P.S. - it's a Rufous-collared Sparrow chick.
