How to Care for Abandoned & Orphaned Wild Baby Birds?


I’m known as the “Bird Lady” in this part of the country. Because I get in touch with them whenever I need branches for my bird’s perches, the department that is responsible for tree pruning in the village is familiar with me.

In most cases, we meet at the location, and I direct them to chop any branches that I want. In exchange, I will take the young birds that have fledged from the nests in the trees that they will be pruning or chopping down. During the months of spring and summer, it is natural for my neighbors and friends to send me young birds that have fallen from their nests.

I have been able to successfully nurse back to health and hand-raise sparrows, starlings, and robins. Once they have reached full health, I then acclimatize them back to the wild before releasing them.

If you come across a newborn bird that is unable to fly but has all of its feathers, you may be able to help it.

LEAVE HIM ALONE. He is still very little, so his parents are doing their best to look after him. Before they are able to take flight, all young birds spend their first few days on the ground. If you discover a newborn bird on the ground and he does not have any feathers, it is obvious that he needs assistance.

The most helpful thing you could do for him would be to take him back to his nest. His mother and father will look after him. The notion that if your scent is on the bird, it would refuse to eat from you is just an old wives’ tale. If you are unable to return him to the nest, you should bring him inside. It is imperative that he be warmed up straight away. Find an experienced individual to take care of him and raise him; this is the most important thing you can do right now.

The upbringing of these infants is an extremely challenging task. Make an effort to discover a facility or individual who specializes in wildlife rehabilitation. It is against the law to be in possession of a native American young bird such as a Blue Jay, Cardinal, or Robin baby. If you have one of these birds, you are required to turn it over to a facility that cares for wildlife. The infant will be taken in by the Trailside Museum in River Forest, where he will be raised, and eventually, he will be released back into the wild.

If you have a young bird of a species that is not native to the area, you will be forced to give it up. If this is the case, you will need to either raise it yourself or locate a local wildlife rehabilitator in your area. I strongly suggest that you look for an expert. On my links page, I have some links to help you discover someone.

If you choose to raise him yourself, please go to Starling Talk. This informative site will help guide you.
