Little Sparrow

Clearly spring has arrived when the little babies are flying about. "Clearly", yes, well, through the screened window, that is. This  fledgling banged into my window and luckily, not too hard, as she landed on the window sill. I was printing at the time so I was right next to the window. 

She was quiet for a good five minutes before she called out. Dad swiftly flew in but took off immediately upon noticing me. She waited quietly which I found interesting. Survival must kick in, as silence would not draw attention.

Moments later she flew away.
How about those long toes?
