I saw something flopping around as I was mowing the lawn yesterday that turned out to be a fledgling bird that had fallen from its nest, a cute little guy that appeared to be a robin from the orange-red blaze on its chest. I know the fears that adult birds will reject babies that smell like people are exaggerated, and since I was wearing gloves anyway I scooped the little flapper up and did a little looking into how to deal with this. It turns out the general advice is to leave them where they were found and let nature take its course, especially since this can be a normal part of a robin's process of leaving the nest. I checked on the area later and there was no sign of him, so I'm just allowing myself to believe things worked out fine for him.
