  • Birds

    My sisters found a bird outside of our house being carried by my cat, it's a baby and we can't reach the nest that we think it's in. We were trimming our trees and I guess it fell out.

    Any suggestions as to what to do with it, how to nurse it, etc.

    Baby birds eat regurtitated worms. So, get busy.

    Seriously though, I'd call animal control. They'd probably know of bird shelters or could give you some advice.

              Honestly?

              Kill it. I mean, if you want to try go ahead (I don't know the exact state of the bird).

                I'm pretty sure that's an urban legend.

                  This reminds me of the time my dad drowned a baby rat that got stuck to one of our mouse traps

                  Poor little dude.

                    Dohhhhh...

                    Foiled again!

                    On a serious note, I feel like an ass now. I always run into downed infant birds around my house...never really knew what to do with them.

                        Well, I mean kill it humanely...

                        Although that is nothing compared to what my teacher said he did to a few stray cats.

                          Did you just let them die there on the ground?

                          Not saying what you did was wrong but that's probably what I would have done not knowing that it was all a myth.
