(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.

What to feed
