Baby bird seemed to have jumped out of its nest into a bush tonight. Does anyone know if June 17 is

the right date for this to happen. He seemed to be fully formed but a bit confused as to what a bush was. I'm in north eastern North America. I hope the little guy will be okay.

1. Depends on the bird

A wren chick is out of the nest in a week easily, others take longer …
But spring is over, so it may not too early for many
You can check in the morning ?

3. I will. He was very small but had all his feathers. He seemed to wonder what his wings were for.

There was a very tall cedar tree just above the bush.

4. If he's feathered

he’s on his way, instinct is kicking in, wondering what his wings are for are probably what got him into the bush (free fall safely) now they’ll get him up in the air…
small sounds like a wren …

5. It could be a wren because he is brown. Thank you. I feel better for the little guy.

2. Typical....they leave the nest and start the process of disengaging....

1 or 2 days before taking flight.
