baby birds

New arrivals. These were found in someones dog yard. So they were brought to me.

One seems stronger and a bit older than the other, and the weakest was very dehydrated. Hopefully it will pull through.

The more active one is starting to ask me for food. There was a third one another couple brought by, it was taken right out of a cats mouth. It was an exceptionally young nestling and it died in the night. It must have been picked right out of it's nest. Poor little thing. I think it was a Goldfinch baby, some kind of finch anyway. It was about the size of the first joint of my thumb.

Hopefully these will do okay and can be released in a couple of weeks.
