(I also think a sturdier shoe would be good to remember the next time I visit!
I found this little guy before noon. I had gone out to the shop and the thing looked like it was shivering on a 'branch' on the ground. I went inside the building, came back with my camera, and it was still there. I took his picture and then tried to pick him up. He was holding fast. I didn't want mom's dog to get it, so I went inside to let her know about it. She said to put him in a box. I often use paper bags in Oregon for injured birds, but a box would work. I found a small one, sprinkled some seed in the bottom, and plucked the tiny creature from where he was clinging. Once it was in the box, I proceeded to fold over the flaps to keep him safe. I put it down in a secure spot and started to leave the shop. However, heard scrabbling noises. Puzzled, I wondered what he was up to and opened the box outside. He proceeded to hop up on the edge of the flap, looked at me with a beak full of sunflower seed, and flew off! I shook my head, emptied out the rest of the seeds, went in to tell mom, and left to go have lunch with Angela. It was a very strange experience!
