Baby birds

If you find a baby bird on the ground she/he most likely fell out of the nest. Find the nest and put the baby back in. If you can’t find the nest, take a plastic hanging planter, place rocks in the bottom (to prevent flooding and give good drainage) and put grass on top of the rocks. Place the baby in the planter and hang in a tree above where you found the baby bird. The mother should return within a hour or two. If you do not see the mom return call a local wildlife rehabilitation center. Do not worry that the mother will abandon the bird because your scent is on the baby…this is an old wives tale.
