This little alien baby bird could belong to the Vesper Sparrow family Yves. The mottled breast feathers with a dark V at the top point in that direction but it's hard to tell for sure from this viewpoint alone. If he is then he'll be a promising singer too since these birds have one of the prettiest songs out there. Very nice shot btw and I enjoyed the narrative too.

Very nice composition and colours Yves. This little bird brings a touch of whimsy to the image. I am not sure what the little guy is either. Great narrativeā€¦.

Thank you very much Debra. I could not resist writing something a little funny about that guy.

Can't tel you the bird that one will mature into. So, for now, it is a UFO (Unidentify flying object). Not sure why but he reminds me a reknown baby alien yelling some kind of - E.T. Phone Home -
