Wow, I never knew about the bacteria in cat claws! Thanks for that, i've learned a thing. =D
I once found a fledgeling goldfinch in town - I knew its parents were around but I worried for its
safety and moved it under a tree. It had been sitting by a doorstep in the street where people were
walking. Somebody could have stepped on it without realising it was there, the poor baby. :<

glad I could educate!
that was definitely a good move on your part, in sure the fledgling appreciated it as much as a bird could. nvn

Aww, thank you! c: I've helped a sparrow once too. It was attacked by a cat, but it wasn't
injured, just in shock. I named her Phoenix and stayed with her all day, trying to keep her
warm, calm and awake while she recovered. At the end of the day she suddenly sprang back
to life and decided it was time to fly in to my bedroom window. ^-^; I released her straight away. <3

Pretty cool. Can you add more pictures (of the place you were volunteering)? Would love to see more. :3

    Very good information :)

    Living out where I do, we've had to deal with our fair share of baby birds, though we only ever took one abandoned hatchling in, she did very well once we figured out what she was.

    A good thing to note is that many baby birds can survive on warmed dog/cat food (wet), but some species, such as the cedar waxwing we rescued, won't eat this, and instead feed on mashed fruit/berries.

    A picture of me feeding the waxwing after we'd had her for about 2 weeks. She was released shortly after this as she was fully flight capable, and found a flock of waxwings that took her in (we believe they were her parents or her parents' flock, and they had another chick her age with them).

    Hi.This is very informative. Thank you for making this. I have a question:
    I know that bread is not good for ducks (or any birds) but a lot of people say if ducks eat it their tummies will swell up. Is that really true?
