Description

These are the first fledglings for this season. On a 95* day I found one of these youngsters had fallen out of the nest, newly hatched – mostly pink and no feathers. It was hanging upside down stuck on a Cholla thorn!! I went inside the house, got long sleeve shirt, long pants, latex gloves and came back for the rescue. Parents were squawking, but I kept reassuring that I was trying to help. I was able to grab one of its legs and place it back in the nest. I guess It was a successful rescue!
