He was on grass next to my side walk in front of my house. When I walked closer to take a look he flew to me and landed on my pants. To keep from hurting him I guided him into my hand. He stayed there until I got on my porch where I set him next to my porch light. He has remained there through the morning. It is a warm, cloudy, and muggy day.
