Cute! But did you happen to put him up in a tree by any chance?? Mom & dad will continue to feed him and there is no worry about the human smell. OR did you call a rehabilitation center?? He is too young to be on the ground. Can you go back and do this?? You can just use a towel to wrap him in and place him on a branch so predators don't get him.
