Say Hello to My Little Friend

I found this little guy sitting near the edge of my yard. He decided to hop out into the middle of the street and so I couldn't help but guide him back into my ground cover. It appears that he can not fly. He just hops and trips a lot.

Later, as I was watering the sod I am laying (another post coming soon), he hopped on over toward the hose as if I was offering him a treat. That's why he looks wet. He took a little bath. 

Once he was done bathing, I sent him over to under the shrubs by my front door and gave him a Frisbee full of water. Then I added one of my unpainted peanut tins with some dead sod and later guided him in. Now that it's getting late, I thought this wire and plywood would suffice as some protection through the night. I hope.

Bird Update: He made it through the night. He's out of his pen, hopping around and chirping. Yay!
Another Bird Update: I've lost track of him. Earlier today I found out there were 2 of these birds in the same situation so I left them to hang out together.
