See Nemo, a California Towhee

So now you see why I'm consumed about protecting him! I snuck this picture last night while the parents were off hunting. They caught me at the end, and chirped disapproval, all calmed down shortly after. He's got way more feathers, and is alert. I read California Towhee's babies only stay 8 days in the nest. It's been 7 since I rescued him. We'll assume he's a little slower on that fleeing the nest deal - with the trauma of falling. Afterall - don't most teens stay at home way longer now days? ;-)

so cute how you take care of him. I love how you take your things seriously. Not everyone would have the persistence to help a little bird. I'm sure he'll be alright :)
