(Video) How to care for a baby bird

Dad brought home a baby bird that fell out of it's nest. With no nest in
site to return it to, he decided that bringing it home was the next best option.
After doing a little research online, we've been caring for the little guy for
about 3 days now and it seems to be thriving.

Temporary home

  • place the bird in a box with shredded newspaper
  • place the box in a safe are away from other pets
  • set up a lamp for warmth ( maximum of 40 watt bulb )


What to feed

  • Crush some dog food or cat food mixed with a little milk
  • Keep the food in room temperature
  • Use a syringe without the needle or a dropper as the feeder


How often

  • Every 30 minutes
  • From dusk till dawn

  • This is so precious! There is a robin’s nest on our bathroom windowsill and we have the second round of babies right now. It is so much fun watching the mama feed them, the kids love it! I can’t wait to show them your video…maybe I shouldn’t because they will want to bring one inside. :) Awesome how-to video!
