Baby Bird by Lindale-FF Baby Bird by Lindale-FF
This morning, I spotted a baby bird that had fallen out of the nest. The mother was circling overhead, but the baby was just hopping about. Mother had not yet taught the baby to fear, so I was able to just move over and actually pet the baby!

Feeling sorry, I fetched my ladder, and returned the baby into their nest.

Did the mother accept the baby? I know that often when a human handles a chick the mother will be able to smell the human scent on it and will not accept it back.

That is just folklore. Watch baby birds after placing them back in their nest, and you will see them faring quite well. This one is no exception, and he even has a sibling to grow with. Just an hour ago, I was outside watching them both hopping about merrily.
