Fledgling Song Sparrow

One of the Song Sparrows banded in my yard last November has stayed around to nest. Connor discovered where the nest recently, and today I saw a young bird sitting just outside of it. I suspect it was just leaving the nest, and both the (banded) father and mother were in nearby trees keeping an anxious eye on their young one while I was uncomfortably close. For its part, the young bird seemed pretty indifferent to me.

Weather today started out overcast, but this afternoon the clouds broke up and for a sunny evening.
