A Baby Bird!

The cowbird is here. I snapped this quick photo yesterday evening, shortly after it hatched. The girls and I had wrapped up a lesson on baby birds before this big event took place. We learned that baby birds need to develop flight feathers and wing muscles before they can fly.

Now that I look at this photo, I have another question: Where did the egg shell go? Did the mother and father House Finch remove it from the nest? Where did they drop it?
