ANOTHER RESCUE BABY IN OUR CENTRE...

it never stops, when people know you take in birds...........newest addition, a little sparrow fledgling found at the local shopping centre in the middle of car-park. Susan brought it ................

cage ready, assess situation, seems as if a gammy foot and maybe a damaged little beak, could still right itself, but I reckon we have a permanent tenant here.............  make up feed for soft beaks, different from baby feed for the budgies and mousebirds, the same as for weaver, so lucky we had some in fridge, mind you we have all sorts ready always, syringes, anti-biotic, oil, leg splints etc. 

Day One was Saturday  and today, little one has got so clever, it now opens mouth when syringe comes into the cage. Prefer to sit on Daddy's finger while being fed, do not like being held in hand, my guess is , will soon start to eat the seeds on offer in cage, then we can reassess, if going into big aviary with the other permanent guests, namely 3 Mousebirds, 1 female Weaver, 1 laughing dove and 1 rock pigeon with broken wing ................ *sigh*

    1. got no choice, Baz ............ the bible says so "Psalm 84:3 Yea, the sparrow hath found an house, and the swallow a nest for herself: guess my house is their house, as they sure know where it is LOL .......but it is soooooooooo rewarding when things go right........... and heartbreaking when they don't *sniff* this one is going to be a success story, I just know.
