The Baby Bird

I found a baby bird rest­ing in the new grass last week. He didn’t seem hurt, but he was all ruffly and unkempt look­ing, and he didn’t seem par­tic­u­lar­ly hap­py that I was pay­ing so much atten­tion to him. I got very close to him with the cam­era and after I got a few good shots I tried to see if he would move or limp or fly. He let me pet him on his head with my fin­ger, and he was very soft. After a few min­utes he hopped away. Per­haps he fell and was a lit­tle stunned, or just want­ed to see the ground up close. It was a nice way to come home from work.

Any­one know what kind of bird this was?
