House Sparrow (fledgling) ~ Haussperling (Ästling) ~ Passer domesticus
House Sparrow fledgling I photographed on one day, the next I found him/her run over by a car. :-( It makes a lot of sense to check all kinds of locations for hiding baby birds who might no be quick enough to escape a dangerous situation during breeding season. Fledglings like the one above still depend on regular food rations from their parents. If healthy and unharmed, they can be (carefully) touched with bare hands and placed in a safe spot close by where they will reunite with their parents.
