Still, like other birds who have made an uncanny connection with their rescuer, Fagin has managed to travel far in a life he almost never had at all.
"He had obviously fallen from his nest, which was very high up, in a massive oak tree," Kenward explains.
The injured baby bird wriggled and gasped at the side of the road.
(Note: You should move a baby bird only if he's hurt or you're certain that he's been abandoned by his mother. Find more tips here.)
Kenward - who has experience rehabilitating orphaned birds - named him Fagin, after the iconic rogue in "Oliver Twist." She figured he would fly back to his nest once he regained his strength.
But, unlike past birds, Fagin ended up sticking around.
If fact, he showed a certain relish for the ways of humans and dogs.
