the deed has been done

R, who is taller than me but weighs 20 pounds less, scampered up the tree like some deathly homesick monkey or squirrel, picked a bird and lowered it down to me in a small backpack. The whole up and down took less than 10 minutes. We got it set up in the box with a warm pad and it ate right away. We're guessing 5 days old, and a female. I have no clue, personally. Pictures:

Just for the record, the nest had 4 babies and an egg.
