Birds and animals are amazing when they loose a limb. I've seen broken legs on birds but not a missing leg. Thanks for sharing.

Awww... I do hope he's still around Kerri. I love seeing birds survive deficits like this.

Catherine said...

Oh my stars ~ poor wee bird! Isn't it amazing how nature can adapt though. Hopefully the sweet thing is happily sitting in a nest somewhere!

Have a great day Kerri!

Hi Kerri,
Well life is hard but he might have survived who knows...
Congrats on the nature blog network, this is well deserved!

I think most birds can do just fine with one leg. He appears to be quite healthy and steady on his foot.

How cool being a part of the NBN! Way to go Kerri! You always have such wonderful photos to show us : )

Ohhh...aren't birds resilient?! Very clear photo! I have never seen a Song Sparrow before.

Ah, poor little guy, his life with one leg won't be easy.
Nature Blog Network is a great idea!

Poor little thing, but at least he has wings to fly!

Stacey Dawn said...

I was thinking/hoping that maybe his other leg was up in the air. Poor birdie... awesome composition though!

Kerri, another incredible shot. I love you little one-legged wonder.

Oh, poor baby! At least cats and dogs have 4 legs.

What a wonderful capture!
