Body of Message:

So glad I found you! I have raised several baby birds over the years . . . a Hawaiian bulbul (see Google Images for a picture), a baby Pheasant,etc. Recently a friend brought me a new born so tiny I lost it to my incompetantacy . . . I felt sooo bad. Recently a nest fell from a gigantic oak in our yard killing 2 Robins and leaving one for me to care for. Most feathers are in and eating well but gald to have reinforcements to look to for help.
I have raised several wild baby animals . . . bunnies,deer and birds and the most important thing I can tell you is poop is everything. Sorry to be so abrupt but what goes in must come out and constipation or diarrhea is the biggest killer. the right amount of moisture and a consistant diet and finding out what and how much to feed is the difference between life and death for babies. Also warmth! Baby birds that have no feathers need a heating pad . . . it's vital to keep them warm. I put mine in an zip lock bag and cover it with a piece of fabric . . . towel or Fleece is so comforting to animals with feathers or fur. Feels like mom or siblings. I love fleece because it rinses off and dries so fast and easy. The babies love it too.
