This little guy was sitting right in the middle of a country road yesterday, I stopped and put him in a tree on the side of the road, I don't think he has been away from the nest for long.



Heres what he will grow to look like

Beautiful shots, as usual!
I too rescude a bird the other day. I live in an apartment building and one of the elderly ladies said a pretty bird flew into her window and she didn't know what to do with it. I went to help her and she had it sitting in her dresser drawer!! I opened it up and it was a cockatiel!! They are not native to Canada so I couldn't release it back into the wild. We made a makeshift cage out of a wire wastepaper basket and some sticks. Now I'm stuck with it!
Anybody want a bird??

Thanks for the comments, I take my Camera with me on my work days, I sometimes get a few minutes here and there (in a 12 hour day)where Im running ahead of time and can take a few shots but I was late after getting this one off the road, I guess it made up for the two birds I killed when they flew into my Van.

I may have to. Trouble is, we also have a cat. For now the bird and cage change from room to room depending where the cat is spending his time. Either the cat goes or the bird goes!:?:

Cute as a button shots. He doesn't look to pleased at the move but that's okay, he's too young to understand. I've almost crashed trying to avoid slow moving birds. Before going into photography I wouldn't have been so careful.

country roads out here are dangerous, I never swerve for birds, I brake when i can but if you swerve you are likely to get killed, lots of trees to hit and soft edges at the moment due to serious flooding, luckily the birds are not all so stupid.
