Last night after coming home from work at midnight I discover Nathan and two baby birds sitting outside the front door. The two babies weren’t flying and Nathan wasn’t sure what to do with them so he sat outside reading a magazine and awaiting my arrival so he could ask me what I think.
When I got home we decided to get them off the sidewalk area so we moved them to out patio where they wouldn’t get stepped on. We had assumed they were babies from the nest that is on our patio.
We let them sit on a blanket outside all night, we didn’t want to try and bring them inside to raise them, we knew they once had the ability to fly since they were out of the nest and that they would probably just go back home once the rested.
This morning the birds had moved off the blanket and were scattered about the patio. One was dead and the other was stuck. The one that died had not visible signs of trauma so were not sure what happened. I have a feeling they are hungry and unfortunately I have no way to feed them.
I read on the internet that moist cat food can be fed to them but the poor little guy wont open his mouth.. He does chirp and call out when he hears other birds though.
I refilled the bird feeder to attract all the neighborhood birds and the little bird is sitting outside on the blanket in the shade right under the feeder. I am hoping he will find his family when the other birds come to feed at our feeder….
Does anybody have any suggestions about feeding birds?? I am afraid he is abandoned..
