I Hate When This Happens!


I hate when a baby bird falls out of it's nest! This baby robin is too young to fly. I found him near my mail box today and he keeps hopping out to the middle of the street! I have picked him up and moved him to a shady spot under the tree where the nest is several times. My son fed it a couple of worms and we have seen the momma nearby. Oh, I hope it survives. The nest is too high up to climb the tree and put it back. Any suggestions?





I listed this new painting, "Just Peeking", on Ebay last night. It was inspired by my own bird bath in the yard. My kitty doesn't go outside but I have seen a few neighborhood cats peering from the bushes!

Oh Cris how pitiful. I've tried many times to keep them in a box but they always seemed to die. You sure it's a robin? It looks like a Blue Jay. But if you saw a mama Robin....

I took care of a baby robin years ago, and it finally flew away on its own after about 2 weeks. I fed it bread soaked in milk with an eyebrow tweezer, and it was a lot of work! I hope your birdie is ok! Love your painting too!

I think you're doing the right thing by keeping it close to the nest and the Momma bird, just make sure there are no kittys around. Happy Spring Cris!
