Young bird on window ledge

There is a young bird sitting on my outside window ledge - this is at 10:30pm at night. I'm just leaving him alone but am concerned. Is there anything I should know or do?

Please do nothing about the bird on your window ledge. Its parents are nearby and will care for it in the morning. It is both illegal and ill-advised to care for or disturb native wild birds.
