(Woodstock, Ontario, Canada)
We have a request for help from a reader in Woodstock, who has found a baby Robin - I found a young Robin who is unable to fly .... where can I take it in southwestern Ontario?
I have put it in a box with lint hoping that will make it warm enough to make it through the night.
Not sure what to do, any help would be great.Hi Darryl please let us know - is the bird very small or does it have feathers already? If it is tiny and has no feathers I'm not sure what you could feed it to help it survive.
Is there a nest nearby, from which this little bird may have fallen? Or perhaps if it is an older youngster, which has feathers, but cannot yet fly, then there could be parent birds around who often continue to feed their young birds, even after they have left the nest.
I hope one or more of our readers will have some ideas of what Darryl should do with this little Robin
