Yesterday I saw two baby birds on our lawn. I checked the internet and they said to leave them there as their mommy will take care of them. They may be there for 3-4 days.
Today my husband checked them and one looked like he was really sick. So my husband cut up a worm real small and tried to feed them with an eyedropper. One of them ate pretty good but the other one was not doing so well. I called the wildlife office and they told me to get a container like a cool whip one, punch holes in the bottom and hang it from the tree. We saw the crumbled nest so they told us to put that in the container and put the birdies back in it. They felt that the moma bird will feed them still. They also told us to soak dog food in water till soft and feed that to them. We tried that and the one bird took it but the other one was having a really hard time. After we fed them we hung the new nest in the tree. These are the pictures before we removed them from the lawn.
The one on the right is worse off, it is hard to get him to open his mouth for food.
The one on the left will still feed. When we put them back in the nest all you had to do was tap the side of the bowl and she would open her mouth for food.
My husband trying to get the sicker one to take something.
The left one willing to eat whatever you give it.
I don't know if they are going to make it, but at least we are trying. My husband thought they might be robins but we are not sure.
