    That little chick is just adorable!!! Great article. You never know if mom is very near but hesitant to approach because of humans so close.

    Beeper was a tiny baby female house finch. We found her on our roof in the clutches of a crow with her nest mate to be his dinner. We managed to scare him enough to drop her and she ran across the roof and I managed to get her down with the hose till she rolled into the gutter where I could reach her and scoop her out. We did listen for any parents in distress or nearby nests and nothing so we fed her and raised her and she bonded to us.
    She was a happy flock member for the rest of her life but if we could have found her nest she would have been with her parents. She would have never made it on her own and that crow or something else would have scooped her up.
    That was a great article and almost every time they should be maybe watched and left alone so the parents can continue to feed and watch over them as they learn how to survive and get food.
