Feeding a Rescued Bird



If you find a baby bird who needs help PLEASE do not feed him anything until you have spoken to a rehabber. So many of the birds we get brought to us die because finders have fed them or put liquids in their mouth. Songbirds are very fragile and get aspiration pneumonia very easy from improper feeding. NEVER put liquids in a baby birds mouth.
