Baby Bird on a Branch
The first thing I saw when I looked out the window this morning was a bird on a branch of the pine tree. Nothing unusual about that, except that he/she was looking around nervously and doing a lot of tail-flicking, and there was something odd about the feathers on the top of the head. They were like new-grown hair. The little bird stayed an unnatural amount of time on the branch, then leapt to a smaller branch nearby. Finally the little bird flew into the porch below, and I realized this must be a newly-fledged bird who had hatched in the rafters of the porch the previous week.
