|A baby Scott's Oriole female?|
We discovered this baby bird in our yard before leaving on a hike this morning. I was tempted to take it to Chihuahuan Desert Wildlife Rescue, as I've done for other critters in the past, but Dr. K suggested I wait until Becca and I returned from our trek to monitor the situation. The baby bird was gone. I looked for it everywhere, but couldn't find it. I suppose that could be good or bad news. I didn't find any errant feathers, though, so I'm assuming it wasn't breakfast for a cat.

What a beautiful bird--I hope it was able to fly away.
Seems a little late in the year for a young fledgling, but maybe not for your biome. I've got Sedge Wrens nesting in my fields--they'd better grow pretty fast!
We have Sedge Wrens in New Mexico, too, Scott, but I didn't know that until I Googled.
