Baby Cedar Waxwing

I found this baby quite by accident. I was mowing with my lawn tractor and while trying to mow around my amur maple tree I bumped it with the tractor's tire. There in front of me I saw this baby on the ground. I realized that I had knocked the baby out from its nest! I ran in the house for my camera and took some shots of it on the ground. Then I carefully put it on a low limb of the tree where it stayed for the day. I came out often to take pictures of it. A parent was in the tree across the road watching everything. The baby was in the tree the next morning, but later in the day it had disappeared. I hope it survived okay.
