If this is your backyard ,then a fledgling should be safe here . Safe location,no cats.
I had found a dove fledgling in a location where it had about 40 percent of survival chance ,what with the cars,cats and dogs and people walking on that side walk,
I took it to the wild life museum.
Dove being doting parents waited for two days for the baby. i have been remorseful since.
