I have a hanging pot of flowers on my back patio, and there has been a nest in there with 4 eggs for a while now, I have been peeking in from time to time just to see if they ever hatched and a couple days ago they did. But I have not seen the momma bird out there in a while and I think she isn't coming back. How could I care for these birds? Would you feed them worms? Or what else should I feed them? I really don't know where to begin in taking care of them but I would be willing to try, Anyone ever cared for baby birds before?

If you are positive that the mom bird is gone, then you should find a wildlife or aviary rescue in your area. I think that is probably the only way they will survive without mama. I have had to take baby birds to a rescue a couple of times. If you can't find a rescue organization on google, try calling around to vets and dog/cat rescue groups, as these people almost always have rescue contacts they can refer you to. Good luck, that's very kind of you to try to help.
