I don't know if Mike has emailed you or not, but I know that you are a bird
watcher and thought you might be interested. Last Saturday a baby bird fell
out of a tree in our yard, and as the parent birds were fighting off the
neighborhood cats and I was holding the neighbor's dog Daphne and Andrew
caught the nestling. We tried to find the nest in the tree to return it but
couldn't, so we have been taking care of him since.
We think that he is a blue jay but are not sure. We were feeding him bread
soaked in milk, which kept him going for several days. Now we are feeding
him hand-raising formula from the pet store. He's starting to fly a little
and we're hoping he'll be able to live on his own in a week or so.
Please let us know if you have any advice or tips on taking care of him.
