A Happy Little Bird!

So, I found this little guy fluttering around on the ground, picked him up and put him in a tree. He was so happy for my good deed that he allowed me to get up close for this portrait. He even smiled!

This is only the second picture I have ever taken of a bird.

Thank you Becky! He let me get very close to him with my 60mm macro lens.

It's obviously the day for stray chicks - I had a baby robin in our garden this afternoon with Mum or Dad frantically trying to locate it!

Ha, that's funny because I saw a few others on our local site here in Nebraska before I saw yours! Great ornithologist must think alike!
