Hi Dr Saurendra and a warm welcome to you from all the Staff and Moderators.
I'm sure you will enjoy it here. I look forward to hearing your news and will hopefully see some of your pictures in the Gallery too.
Just explain to them that it wasn't their fault, obviously something was wrong with the nestling before you saw it. There is, anyway, a very high mortality rate in young birds, hopefully some of his brothers and sisters will make it (try and keep the cat indoors until they've flown).
I am so sorry to hear this ! It could well have been poorly before it fell from the nest, then the cat attack could well have given it a shock and all too much for the young one to bear.
At least you tried to help him - thank you for caring. You may be in a better position now to be able to...
Yes, I've found that too. At one time it used to Mute my speakers and I was unable to reset that, just had to shut down and start again with fingers crossed. Sometimes, after an hour or so working away, it would suddenly remove the cross and the speakers worked again without me doing anything...
I'm not sure what "red milo" is, but none of the birds in my garden will eat red millet, so I don't buy a mix that includes it.
I generally buy sunflower hearts and stir in a handfull or two to any mixes I buy. The birds seem happy enough with that.
See if your local Wildlife Trust sell any...
Hi Jake and a warm welcome to you from all the Staff and Moderators.
LOL from your description I was thinking Pied Wagtail, but I'll not argue the toss with BH, a much more experienced ID'er than me.
I'm sure you will enjoy it here and I look forward to hearing your news.
Hi Chik’z and a warm welcome to you from all the Staff and Moderators.
We have some general guidelines here for the care of injured and baby birds. Orioles are generally fruit eaters, but nestlings will mostly be fed on insects. Bread and milk really isn't suitable for them. Tinned cat food...
Lisa answered that question in your other post here: https://www.birdforum.net/threads/need-help-finding-a-bird-rehabber.410789/
I think you may be confusing yourself with asking the same question on different threads, it makes it harder for you to keep track of them LOL
My most common corvid to the garden is the Jackdaw, with occasional visits by crows. Rooks are a long way behind, so nice to see one descend for a change.
Incidentally I've had a couple of Magpies visible from my flat but no Jays as yet!
Hi Mixxy and a warm welcome to you from all the Staff and Moderators.
You have a pair of Jays and you can read more about them in our Opus article here: Eurasian Jay - BirdForum Opus
You're rather lucky, as they're very scarce where I live (I'm lucky if I catch sight of a disappearing white...
Hi lindat and a warm welcome to you from all the Staff and Moderators.
It strikes me as being fairly normal behaviour. The adults are strengthening the young ones wing muscles and showing them the landmarks of their natal area. Once the adults feel they are strong enough for the journey, they...
Hi SfromKY and a warm welcome from me too.
I agree with KC.... it definitely seems she is eating whatever it is she's finding.
I'm sure you will enjoy it here and I hope to hear about all the birds you see when out and about.
