    Absolutely no idea of breed, but if it sticks around you can call it "Freddy Freeloader" or if it's a girl "Fredi Freeloader".

    Possibly a goose gosling...? I really don't know but that's what Google suggested.

    Goggle “birds of Kosovo”. Look for water birds. Something like a Corn Crake. Or some type of field bird.

    It definitely looks like some type of water fowl, but without webbed feet? I think that this bird is a juvenile based on the down feathers. Apparently there are 349 species of bird where you live and none of them look exactly like this but I think that's because it's a juvenile. This is as close as I could get, and it's a type of very small Herron. How big is your bird?

    I agree it's a juvenile but I think the beak is wrong for a heron.

    Do you have things like wildlife rescue groups? They would probably know.

    The bird has pretty long thin legs and is the size of an 8 week old chick.And he is defintely a juvenile bird
