This is the time of year that little ones are leaving the nest, some fall out or leave a bit too soon and others leave on time. Well meaning people don't understand that the bird is being watched and kept safe by it's parent and should not and does not need to be saved. Very likely your friend "stole" this bird away from it's nesting area and the parent who had a very close eye on it. When a bird leaves the nest and can't get back the parent brings it food and watches over it, so you should take it back and leave it as close as possible to where your friend found it and the parent will find it and take it in

It is extremely time consuming to raise a baby bird and nearly impossible when you know nothing about the species and it's needs or raising young birds. If you do manage to keep it alive into it's second year it won't be able to fend for it's self in the wild so it will always be dependent upon you and will spend it's days in a cage.

If your friend found it in a place that is unsafe because of traffic or other animals then you should take it to your local Audubon Society or Wildlife Dept so they can care for it properly and release it back into the wild.

Take care and take care of the furry one by letting it go,
