Saving a Birdlet

Tom brought it to my attention that there was a baby bird on our back porch.  Of course, I had to save it.

It's in the cute fuzzy head stage.

After I took picks, I got a stool and put it back in the nest it had fallen out of.

I hope it stayed put.  I've checked several times to make sure it hasn't fallen out again.

Will the mommy still accept it? I thought if it smelled like a human they would abandon it.

That's a myth, April. Though, if there's a possibility that it's been in a dogs mouth, it should go to a wildlife rehabilitater to be treated with antibiotics. Apparently dog saliva is toxic to birds.

This bird is much cuter than a grackle. I want it.

Did I ever tell you about the Owl my dad rescued?

Mosaics said...

No, I never heard about the owl. That would be very cool to raise an owl, though.
