It was stunned and quiet. It had bright yellow mouth edges. which means it was a juvenile that still had its bright mouth to lets its parents know where its hungry mouth was in the nest.
As you can see, Georgia enjoyed holding its small delicate body while we looked for our bird cage and got water and soft grass. (We tried letting it go an it just hopped away lopsided, so I hoped we could let it recover in a cage instead of get jumped by a neighbor cat)
When we got home from soccer a few hours later we opened the cage and out she flew, strong and steady up into the silver maple in the yard. Hooray!
