This little baby was in a nest in a wine barrel at a local elementary school right near the classrooms. I went by to check if the babies had fledged for three days, and on the third day, this little one and four others were flying and hopping all over. I used my 300 mm. zoom lens and took this photo while he rested on a rock. I think the few down feathers still on his head make him look especially cute.
