Finding a Home for a Baby Bird

I found a baby bird on our steps outside and have been feeding it. I need to find a home for it. What do I do?

There are wildlife rescue organizations that may be able to help or call your local humane society. I knew one woman who kept the birds and raised them (they were too injured to release--like deformed leg, etc.) Good luck and thanks for your kind heart! NickiX

Here's some possibilities to look up near you online or in yellow pages. If they can't help you directly they will advise you or refere you to a source near by.

Wildlife Sanctuary

Wildlife Rehabilitation

Local Zoo

Bird or Animal Rescue Groups

Vets sometimes know the groups and what they do as well as have refering resources.

Becareful what you feed the young ones they can't tolerate some things and actually what we sometimes end up doing is not good for them.

I know and learned the hard way.

Usually birds do better without human intervention. They can be "grounded" for a while while they learn to fly. Most times we do them much more harm than good by trying to help. We had a baby robin that was on the ground for about a week. Then he was flying to the picnic table/propane tank, then low tree branches. He got flying good in about 2 weeks.

Dear Gladys!

If you are helping the bird survive, you are doing what very few people on this Earth are capable of doing. I suggest you keep doing it until the Bird learns to fly and decides to leave on it's own.

Maybe the bird will decide to stay with you. What kind of bird is it?

Congratulations on keeping the baby alive! You should be very proud of yourself. Now that it's time for Birdy to go elsewhere, please contact your local ASPCA, Humane Society or the like. They have programs in place for situations like yours. It will be fostered with a trained, licensed wild life rehaber.

Best regards-
