Baby bird - IN MY HOUSE

I'm not sure how it got in, but it can't fly (it does have feathers). The kids found it in the tub. I have moved him (or her, who knows) to a box, but I have no idea what to do with it. If I put it outside I'm sure he will become cat food. Any suggestions?

  • Call a rehabber ~

    It may take a few hours for one to get back to you, but they will call. This is a busy time of year. In the meantime, offer the bird room temp pedialyte (or a homemade mix) ~ no food. Digestion uses up too much energy if a bird is stressed or injured. If you get a call back and they can't pick it up until tomorrow, ask them what to offer as food at that point. Just keep them in a box in a quiet room for the time being.

    And, if you have old towels, sheets, blankets, newspapers, or some spendy cash around, ask if they need anything!

  • feed it soft cat food by tweezers to keep it alive. Anything else you feed it you must chew it up first.

  • @Kimkh- does she actually have to CHEW it? Or can she just squish it up? lol

  • Call your city and see what kind of services they have to take care of it.
