"Murphy was an optimist!"

Our little non-flyer is still alive. Everytime it gets to the ground I bring it back up to its "nest". Some large Blue Jays have taken to protecting it and sqwauking at me loudly whenever I approach the youngling. As much as it has flapped around on the ground I’m amazed the cat hasn’t taken it. When it is on the ground, the larger Jays are more abundant and in closer proximity. It’s really interesting to watch them protect the young one. Observing its flying attempts I wouldn’t be surprised if it didn’t take to the air if it survives a couple of days.
