Beth- wildlife Rehabber

This bird was found alive. Has no eyes. Wondering if help with identification. Looks like some type is sparrow to me but not sure which. Feather tracks look odd and legs yellow when normally pinkish.

Hi Beth, I don't know what species it is but it is extremely young, maybe a few days, and if it had no eyes at birth it was probably kicked out of hte nest so the other birds would have a higher chance at survival.

You need to keep it very warm and out of drafts, and in a quiet place, a heating pad on low with warm blankets is good but be sure to keep the pad dry so you don't fry the little one. Give it water in an eye dropper and it's diet will consist of lots and lots of protein. Protein is all it should be eating now which means bugs. You will need to keep it's little bottom clean and keep the dispose of it's waste.

Baby birds need to eat every 2 hours around the clock.
