    I just found this little bird in the garden. I put it back out in the garden after hearing one it's parents making the exact same loud sound. There is a penny for comparison on it's tiny size. It is loud and hungry!

    The parent is about 2" tall and grayish. I am heading out to try to get a picture of the parent.

    I'm going with a species of Titmouse. They are tiny birds at maturity. Also hard to raise up.

    I work with a bunch of wildlife rehabers

    oh my goodness. I wish I had the leisure to sit and watch the birds playing in my yard all day long. I love them.
