Mocking bird update

Dad was out watering a few plants yesterday and saw a baby mockingbird in the backyard that hasn't quite learned to fly. He's somewhere between sad and comical as he runs and flaps trying to get some air under his tiny wings. Dad saw him pass through a gap in the fence to the neighbor's back yard (bad call by my account since they have a yippie little dog) but we expect him to be airborne in a few days and then the fiasco will be over. We hope. In the meantime, we're staying ever vigilant by the back windows -- and drooling.
