A mockingbird's progress...

The baby mockingbird I wrote about last week has left the nest! 
Its parents are staying close. 
As the parent delivers a juneberry the fledgling gapes its beak and flaps its wings, showing off pink skin where its feathers haven't grown in yet.  
Not much of a tail yet either...
The tiny bird disappears in the leaves at nap time.
