Ok, I made a little nest out of a vented flower pot. It’s a really nice nest, I put soft grass & some of Cece’s hair in it (I had shaved her recently). I wasn’t able to get it very high in the tree, but I tried to put it under where the actual nest is. I just saw the mom feeding the others, so I’m hoping she’ll realize this baby is in the little makeshift nest & go feed him. I really don’t feel like I’d be very good at hand-raising him & I’d just end up getting my heart broken, I’d rather take my chances that the mom will come take care of him. I know he is probably going to end up dying, but he’d die stressed in my house & it’d be better for him to die peacefully in his soft nest, I guess. I feel really sad.
I am so stressed out right now, I don’t know what to do. I can’t get it back in the nest, it’s too high up. It seems healthy but it’s not even a week old, its eyes are closed. I know the odds of me being able to hand raise it are incredibly slim,. Uggggggggh
I’ve called several veterinary clinics & they all recommended me to the same place, which said they don’t take birds at all. I called the college (which has a large veterinary program) & they said they don’t take healthy baby birds, only sick ones.
Annie and sleepy Britta say good morning!
