Baby Mourning Doves
(Damascus, Va USA)
I need help ASAP!! While cutting brush a nest was torn down. There were 2 babies in it. They were saved but the nest site is gone. Saved some of the nest, put it in an empty cool whip container with some lent particles from my dryer. Put it in a tree near the house, but mother or father doves have not found babies. What can I do? The babies are hunkered down in the nest, and seem comfortable, but will starve if mom doesn't come to them.
I suggest you provide them with some food and water and hopefully the parents will return. Go to Feeding abandoned Baby Birds.
