Please, do not hamper a young bird's life by picking it up, and taking it home with you. It is calling its parents to help them in locating it.
After fledgling from the nest, the parent birds will keep feeding it, and look out for it, until it will be able to look after itself.
And the reason you cannot see a parent is because of your own proxomity to the young bird. And while you are ebating if or not you should take the bird home, you keep the parent from giving it well needed nutrition in the form of a meal!


The photos on this blog are all taken by me. If there is any picture you might want to use for any other than personal use, please drop me a line to the email address shown in the sidebar on the right.

Cold Robin, Erithacus rubecula

These are pictures I took yesterday; This Robin seems cold, but also in a way that it looks snug and warm, despite the cold temperatures.

A cold & windswept Chaffinch female, Fringilla coelebs

And I've posted not much of my Jackdaws lately, so here's one.
Jackdaw, Corvus monedula

I will post photos of the others in wildlife on Wheels; with little Wild Flowers/Insects etc. abuot, it needs some postings on birds too.

  1. Lovely shots. :0)

    The North Wind doth blow and we shall have snow,
    and what will poor Robin do then, poor thing?
    He'll sit in a barn and keep himself warm
    and hide his head under his wing, poor thing.

    ... except he doesn't, of course. But your photo evokes the same feeling i used to get as a child, thinking of the little robin lonely in his barn, fluffed up against the cold. (You're right, yours does look cosy.)
