So sad NEW

Unfortunately I found it on my back patio and tried to give it water and food, but it would not take it and just fell over dead.

Don't know why because it was not damaged in any way.

So sad.

I called the wildlife rehab center and they told me this is a cedar waxwing. Some birds are OK when found on lawn, mom is still taking care until they can fly a day or two later. This is not one of those birds, should be taken in to a rehab center if found on lawn or in one position for more than a few minutes or an hour, etc.

I just found 4 birds that look just like this only older dead, Something killed them and left them only partially eaten. A raccoon maybe?

baby bird with yellow strip.

I had one bird fly into my garage. It was in the process of learning to fly. It will do fine on its own.
I am curious to know what specific type of bird it is.

HI, I don't know what species your little is. I'm guessing that it has probably flown out of the nest and mom is taking care of it. If you can put it back in the nest that would be OK but otherwise I would suggest that you put it somewhere it will be safe but where Mom can still take care of it. Many birds are still fed by their parents after they leave the nest and your bird has all of it's feathers except the tail feather which is common for young birds. I hope someone gives you an answer to the species. But give your little bird it's best chance of survival and send it back to the care of Mom.
