There are many times that a bird is found somewhere on the ground when it is not supposed to be. It is not unlikely for a baby bird to be separated from its mother before it is ready to take off on its own. It is important to know the right way to take care of this bird so that you do not do any further harm to it.
Many people think that a baby bird will be tainted if human hands touch it. This is not true. A person should do a few things when they find themselves in the same path as a baby bird. Determine if the bird fell from a tree or nest above. If so, try to reach it and place the baby bird back into the nest where it belongs.
Carefully place the bird in a box or paper bag lined with some sort of soft material. If you were not able to find the nest that the bird came from, this would make a good temporary nest for the baby bird to be comfortable in. You need to make sure that you have poked holes in the box or bag so that the baby bird cans breath.
Make sure that you keep the bag or box with the bird in a safe place where it will not be in harms way. You should make sure that you store the bird in a warm and dry place. You should also make sure that the bird is not where another animal can reach it to do it harmed. You need to protect the bird and keep it safe while it is in your care.
Once you have the bird safe and sound, you should then contact a veterinarian or someone that deals with birds. You can go to a local pet store to get the help that you need for the baby bird. They will usually take the bird and keep it safe while the bird is growing and becoming more and more healthy. They will give the baby bird the care and the food that it needs to keep it strong.
