found a baby bird on the ground. What should I feed
If you find a
very young baby bird that has fallen out of the
nest (few or undeveloped feathers) try to locate
the nest and replace the baby bird. Your "human"
smell will not frighten the adults and they will
continue to care for the baby bird.
If the bird is a
little more developed and is moving around on its
own the best thing to do is to leave it alone. You
may not see one of the parent birds but the odds
are they are still caring for the baby
wildlife specialists are authorized to handle most
lost, sick or injured birds. Try contacting a
before taking a young bird. Follow their advice on
the baby bird.
If you do not find
a rehab center near you then contact your local
Fish and Wildlife Management office. One of the
following offices may be able to assist
