LEAVE YOUNG BIRDS BE!!
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!

I observed one of my Robin feeding in the Fatsia black bin which houses my Fatsia. There were Jackdaw and Rooks about, which I assume were the cause of the Robin looking up. I am just waiting for the youngster, to appear soon. But so, here is one of the parents:
Robin, Erithacus rubecula
Song Thrush, Turdus philomelos
This Magpie has been quite annoying again.
Magpie, Corvus pica pica
House Sparrow, Passer domesticus
