Feeding Abandoned Baby Birds


Apartment Listing  

Baby birds are so fragile and helpless, and when abandoned by their parents, their chances for survival are minimal. You can do something about it, but take care that you know how and what to feed them with. The wrong kind of diet can kill the bird.

The safest diet to give weak baby birds is sugar water. Get an eyedropper, and fill it with the solution. Tap it to remove air bubbles. Take the bird carefully with your hand and gently lift the head. If it does not open its mouth, tap on the beak lightly. Place the dropper inside the mouth behind the tongue. Squeeze out a few drops at a time. Be patient, and remember that it can only take in a little at one go. Repeat the feed after 15 minutes.

The best people to take care of abandoned birds are wildlife rescue agents. So, contact them as soon as possible. They will also advice you on the best way to feed the birds.

If the bird is slightly older, then you can even feed it with small pieces of meat. As the bird grows in size, you can feed it bigger pieces. You can also hard-boil eggs, and cut the white into small bits. The yolk can be mixed with milk and made into a paste. 

If the bird continues to grow and thrive under your care, you can continue feeding it with the same diet. Whenever you can, give it worms cut in pieces. You can do the same thing with insects as well.
