So my mother-in-law brought me this baby bird that was (apparently) abandoned and on the hot sidewalk, chirping it's head off and not using one of it's legs. So, being the 'animal lady', it got brought to me. I called fish & game and they told me since it was injured and a single bird that can't be released, that they would probably put it down and since it is probably a non-endangered bird (I described it over the phone) they were ok with me keeping and raising it. So at the time (June 24th) it had some feathers coming in, but was mostly bald. I looked up info, fed it every 20min during the day, etc, etc. It's now over a week later and it's amazingly how fast they grow. He (i assume) is flying, though none too skillfully, and playing with toys and grooming himself. He had his first bath yesterday and LOVED it! He started moving his leg a few days ago, and now actually uses it! He will not grip with his foot though, merely set it on the perch. I am confident it will improve though. I'm still feeding every hour, as much as he wants, but i'm offering insects, seeds, hanging millet, etc. He has a brand new cage with perches, water and a mirror. I cover it at night and he is really quiet, but let's me know when he's hungry or wants to fly around the house! I'm quickly falling in love From the pictures online I think he's a starling. What do you guys think? he's all puffed up, usually looks more streamlined.
