I have a Robin's nest on the down-spout of my eavestrough and this morning a crow came and ate three of the four babies.
I saw the fourth one on the ground so I picked her up with a bag and put her back in the nest
I was wondering if there is a posibility that any more are on the ground, and what do I do now with the other baby if the parents don't come back?
How long do I wait to step in and what do I do?I'm not sure what you can do to help this little bird - just put her back in the nest and hope the parents return. Sometimes, when the chick is close to being ready to leave the nest, they can survive without the parents, but often when they are very small and depandant, it is not possible to keep them fed, warm and alive.
I do hope that the parents returned to the nest and have raised this little chick.
