Has anybody had one? I am reading up on the web but real life experience is better. No vets are open at this hour. I found a baby in the gutter today. He looks like he was probably trying to fly and landed there or fell out of the nest. He has all his feathers but his tail is very short. He cannot fly nor does he grasp my finger with his toes. I currently have him in a small box with a makeshift nest out of wash cloths. So far he has eaten a skinless grape, some water-soaked wheat bread and a bite of cat chow soaked in sugar water. he doesn't like the cat chow.
So, what do I do with this little guy? Do I need to wake up all night to feed him or will he last until morning? I hope to find a wild life vet tomorrow who can take him. If I can't what the heck do I do? Has anybody had one? I have cared for many adult injured sparrows and a pinky mouse but never a baby sparrow.
