What Bird Is This?

Today the First Grade and I found a fledgling hopping around the patio where we have our lunch circle. It was cute and clearly just out of a nest. The bird got a good lesson when the children got too close for its comfort-it could fly! The bird had spent the whole morning hopping around and hiding behind the flower pots. But, as soon as the children approached, its wings knew what to do and it was off into the bushes. 

Here, two first grade girls look for it in its hiding place.
