This little guy — I think it is a brown thrasher baby — was jumping around my garden this afternoon, clearly having unintentionally fallen from the nest. It’s been very windy today and I think this nest is in one of my burning bush shrubs — thrashers like to nest in a dense shrub. I first encountered him in the perennial bed with the shrub, and he hopped off to the vegetable garden. At one point, both of the bird’s parents were standing next to it, apparently offering advice. After taking this photo, I took off to give them privacy.
