The starlings really enjoyed the cherries on my tree scattering the efficiently cleaned stones all over the place. I think the attached photo is from one of these stones. Is it a baby cherry tree> Will it develop into a full grown tree bearing fruit?

It's Goat Willow. See this earlier post "It's Goat Willow, Salix caprea"

Usually if it's a tree or shrub and it's not what you think it is, chances are it's Goat Willow.

Yes, It looks like a cherry, it will become a full sized tree, cherries grow to well over 10 meters, but the fruit may or may not be worthwhile. Genetics are variable, and it can take a long time for a seed grown tree to produce. Over 10 years with an apple. I have a lot of non-native wild cherries around where I live and though the fruits are generally palatable, they are about half the size of commercial varieties.

Okay, then I think I'll rely on my cuttings which, although small are looking healthy. I guess they are a better bet?
