Ran down, scooped him up, put him in a safe warm box and kept watch over him for the past half hour while he got his wits about him. Took awhile, but soon he was standing up again, blinking up at me. Offered my finger, and he hopped right on. Stayed there outside until I thought my finger was going to fall off, and then he finally flew away. Day is made.
