This little sparrow fell from a nest and escaped being eaten by dogs.
He was still naked when rescued, but knew how to demand feeding.Earned him the title "General Bird."

Stunning pic and story...reminds me of late mom and her feeding of wild birds, if she was late with their treats they would come into the kitchen and demand feeding they trusted her so much.

Annamaria,this is an older photo. General Bird did very well and joined the large sparrow populaton among the trees.I hve not been able to differentiate it once it flew off, but for a long time i did wonder which one it might be!

papagena, i am gathering your the dogclub namesake!
I fed this little one from a syringe with a store bought baby bird food.the chick adjusted, but i am not sure ever convinced that i was its mother!
After a few flying lessons(instinct the teacher) it flew away with the other sparrows!
