To others who see baby crows....this one needed rescuing because of a broken wing but so many of the baby birds we have brought to us at the bird clinic should not have been rescued. Baby birds actually spend time on the ground before they can fly. They parents guard them and make them hide in bushes and then go off to collect food for them. They have not been abandoned or pushed out of the nest too soon. This is normal and a part of the process. Unless you can clearly see the animal is sick or injured its best to leave it alone. Many rescued baby birds die from the stress of human contact and they were not in need of rescueing. If you need to know what to do about a bird you see please call your local wild life rescue first to ask them how to tell if you should interfere. Beth is an animal health professional so she knows what to do.
