I'm ready for my close-up!

In the excitement over a black snake in the yard and the accompanying cacophony of about 20 or 30 backyard birds raising a ruckus, this baby bird, who is NOT ready to fledge yet, looked like he was ready to take off anyway! I was so worried that he might jump or fall out of the nest, but after Roy dispatched the snake and everything calmed down, he finally did go back my relief. Fortunately, I had the presence of mind to grab my camera before he did and get a couple of shots.
Here's the close-up:

Snakes are definitely something for him to be wary of...I'm glad to hear he didn't fall from the nest. Cute pic!
