thanks for sharing!! we just found a baby bird in our back yard today and
couldn’t find the nest it fell out of so, we’re trying to take care of it.
we had no clue what to feed it or how often… my kids are so excited now
that we’re going to try to raise it. off to grab some purina…lol

Thanks for the tips!! In the area that I work, The company who does the
tree trimming sometimes knock the babies onto the ground and leave them to
die. It kills me to not be able to help them.

This is so beautiful and touching. G-d bless you for caring for the tiniest
of creatures:) I posted a short video of sparrows chirping in a pine tree.
To the right of the video in a description of the video there’s a poem
about sparrows you might like. Just search A Sparrow’s Bracha on You Tube
to find it.

sticking a worm in, it din’t spit it out, but i don’t want to force it. how

This sparrow is younger than any I have encountered, but I ADORE sparrows
and am glad to see you do, as well, and are taking care of the abandoned
young. Keep up the good work.

zerounite says:

I am not sure if what i feed to the baby sparrow is ok but I usualy feed it
smashed steam rice mixed with water. Sorry I am new to this and I felt bad
for the baby sparrow and I didn’t want it to die so i decided to take care
of it … i put it back on the nest but the mother kept throwing it away
… akward

Morenumbers123456789 says:

For a young bird(not baby ones), say a marsh tit, how often would you have
to give them food? Do you have to go and give them food at night?

Mariah Spence says:

hello, I have a baby sparrow he fell out of the nest and i became
caretaker. you can also use puppy chow. take about 1/4 a cup of puppy chow
and add water and blend it till its milkshake consistency. he is exactly
the age of this one. once they get older you can start feeding them bits of
puppy chow then once there even older you can give the little one seeds.
hope this also helps 😉 thankyou for uploading!

alotus9 says:

that is so cruel that people would do such things to helpless
do they find that fun?

Just Some Person says:

I have no idea why people who be so cruel, but thats why i take in the
babies and raise them! I think they are cute!

L Huppler says:

My cat just brought in a baby that I kept him from killing. It looks to be
nearly a fledgling, though, but I’m going to try this anyway and hope it
doesn’t die from whatever injuries it has and before I can find a rescue…
Thanks for the video.

It are bewtiful burd.

technocharm says:

Thank you for this guide. A big help.. since no shelter is open right now.

inbetweentics says:

that was really nice of you mike. most people wouldn’t bother, and as women
tend to have more of a nurturing disposition, it’s HIGHLY commendable on
your part because you showed that a man can have the patience and nurturing
capabilities that a woman has as well. he just has to do it! :) like the
man in birdman of alcatraz. you can bet that bird made it okay :)

Just Some Person says:

If you have been feeding it properly every 45 minutes -1 hour), and it is
still not growing, take it to a vet. It could have a vitamin deficiency, or
other problems. But it the baby seems active and eats with no problems,
then try not to worry. You just have a slow grower!

kpopshawol says:

I found a baby sparrow that fell out of its nest a couple of days ago, but
its mom was in the tree so I didn’t touch it cos my mom said she’ll take
care of it. Do you think she will? I feel guilty for leaving it :(

wackyjackysillybilly says:

what r u feeding it. plz tell me. my little sparrow wont eat anything and
im afraid he will starv to death

missmommy185 says:

omg, totally heart warming :)

Fishcake says:

just went into my garden and saw one even younger than this, must have only
been born, but it was dead.. upset me so much :(

Mike Schneider says:

Thanks for the help! I just found a baby robin that had been evicted from
its nest- there were three other, and larger, babies in there all ready. I
couldn’t just leave it there so i brought it into my sunroom. Sometimes I
get the feeling he is hungry because he is chirping like crazy but he won’t
open his beak. What does this mean?

Just Some Person says:

You’re very welcome!

FuzzyHead411 says:

what if you’ve found the baby bird with no parents and u have to take care
of them? I had to but they wouldn’t let me feed them because they wanted
their mom

e7snype says:

thanks my bird is now 1month and a bit but still hasnt grown, his feathers
fall out and dont grow properly this may be because of his moult and he
cant fly,i hope hes ok

bdasnjsal says:

kool i think mine is 5 days cause it has feathers everywhere

Chelsie Lesiak says:

ok ill try it thanx

Just Some Person says:

The Sparrows that i recieve are usually from the local park, where the
mother parents are killed. In the state that i live in, Sparrows are often
shot and killed for fun, leaving the babies and/or eggs behind.
