what could have cause the death of this birdie?

we found a little bird outside our apartment, it was just like gasping for air and wasnt making any sound, and apparently it didnt have anything broken or any visible wounds, we tried to take it to a rescue place but it died in our way there, and im concerned i could've done something about that little birdie!

  • He could have drank something poisenous or eaten something that expanded in his stomach. Virus' go around this time of year for birds.

  • i would call the dr in the morning. just b/c you don't know what caused it to die, did you take it and drop it off at the shelter? if you did maybe you could call them and ask them if they can tell what caused it. it would just make me worry b/c you never know what it could have been

  • i meant concern

  • i would not have worried so much about a wild bird to take it to a shelter. They probably would have just thrown it in the trash can unless it was some kind of exotic bird that got out somehow. I would have done what the Native Americans do....pray for it's soul & bury it. Or i would have pushed it in a bush & let him die. Everything dies, it's really not that big of a deal.
