Wow! You can get THAT close to them!? Unless they're the annoying pigeons in New York City, birds always run away from me. He looks so calm! Fish I think I can handle, but birds may be a bit much! :rofl

oh no, i wouldn't dare pet a baby bird, i learned from when i was young that their mothers disown them if there is a strange scent on them.. i have no idea how true that is, but i didn't want to take my chances in case he was still being looked after by his mother.

I have mixed opinions about that. Think about the bird breeders that hold the babies and then the mothers still feed them :) My ex friend's sister found baby rabbits that her and her friend were holding. I told my co worker wouldn't the mom not want to take them back but she said no, she will. Like you said, I have always been told my scent will affect if the mother will take them, but I just don't know anymore :rofl
