It’s mid-April, which would seem way too early for a fledgling. However, there was a small bird feeder on my patio, under my bird feeder, that did not fly away when I approached it. I took a couple of photos of it. It looks like it has some extra fur on it like I imagine a baby bird would, but my husband suggests that maybe it is just an old bird that’s puffed up to stay warm.
What do you think? Is this bird young, or old? I hope he or she is OK. I checked later and it was no longer there.
