My daughter, Laney, was the first to see him. This little cutie is the first to emerge from the nest. In backyard nature , I explained that I was afraid the mother had been killed. But, as you can see, all is well. This little guy is only a foot away from his nest. He likely got impatient waiting for mom to come and feed him at dark.
We’ll have to keep the dog on a leash for a while – at this point the little fellas could be anywhere.
Do you see the white mark on the top of his head? I hope he keeps it forever.
