The little birdie looks exactly like this:
only that its feathers look a bit more ''unbrushed'' probably because it kept trying to get away and hitting itself on our fence. I think it fell out of its nest and unfortunately it is unable to fly yet. I couldn't find any adult sparrows so I had to take it home because it was getting dark outside and we have neighbors whose cats like to roam in our backward. I did everything wrong, I scarred the poor thing, placed water in a measuring spoon inside its cardboard box and it jumped right into it and got frightened even more. I've read somewhere that stressed birds can catch pneumonia when in contact with water, I hope the poor thing is ok. Do baby sparrows eat bird seeds? I placed a small amount of Universal diet vitamin and mineral fortified for small birds seeds. I am panicking because I have no idea how to take care of wild birds even though I own a cockatiel. There's no place I can call to at this moment, it is too late and no aviary is open at this hour. I'm afraid this little baby won't make it through the night. Here's how its domestic ''nest'' looks like:
The white thing underneath the cardboard box is used to warm its nest. I placed a cloth inside it and closed the lights so it can calm down after being stressed. Right now it is sleeping. What else can I do to help the poor thing?
