Frantic Mama

This morning on the way to the garden I heard an unusual amount of tiny chirping noises that seemed like they were coming from all around.  I looked down and almost stepped on this:


Teeny tiny baby bird just out of the nest


It startled me because a couple of weeks ago Oliver the cat found a copperhead in that same area, and yesterday I stepped on some sort of snake that I never could see but it still gave me the willies. 

I looked around for mama bird and there she was up in the tree fussing away at me.  Too bad she doesn't have arms to carry her baby away to safety.
