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!

Stripping of the grains

juvenile Jackdaw, Corvus monedula

harvested Oats.

The Birds have been "sowing" the seeds, and the Jackdaws are now stripping the Oats, and it is not unsual to see one with a beak full of the seeds, and lots more it looks like.

With three youngsters to feed, I cannot blame them for sowing seeds all over the garden.
It has been raining here now for 10 days, more or less. I know the plants need it, but can we get it at night please?
As you can see below. the little Jacks are fully alert!

Rook, Corvus frugilegus.

I love how this position of a bird feeding looks like it making a curtsy.
