PSA:My Mother never told me this! Reblog to save a baby Bird:)
“The general rule for finding a baby bird or any animal infant on the ground is simply to leave them alone. Most often, the parents are watching from a distance. But if a baby bird is found on the ground without its fledgling feathers and the nest is easily within reach, it can be returned without harm. The parents will welcome it back with open wings.” [source]
(for those too lazy to click on the source: it’s okay to put the baby bird back, but do not disturb its nest.)
Well, huh. Learn something new every day.
