Poor baby!

Poor baby!

We found this baby bird on our deck- Looks like it crashed into our house?? My mother has volunteered to nurse it back to heath for release if I can find out what it is and what it eats etc.. Please help if you can as I worry our time is limited! is my e-mail Thank you!!


In most cases, it is best to let nature take its course. Don't interfere.

The bird appears fully feathered, and chances are it doesn't need your help. Each spring, baby birds leave the nest and have to learn to be adults. Their parents are nearby. They're best equipped to take care of the babies. You can help fledglings by keeping your dogs and cats in the house.

No matter what the "first aid for baby birds" books at the library say, you will kill baby birds if you offer them a diet of human baby foods, hamburger meat, tuna, bird seed, milk, bread or water. Baby birds eat bugs and worms.
Sorry, if that's not the answer you were hoping for.

It looks like a titmouse to me.

I just searched in my bird book and
the closest I found is a Ruby crowned kinglet
because of that little red crown patch. Also the golden crown kinglet has the same shape
so it must be in that family. Unfortunately my book does not tell me what kind of bugs it eats but that they can be found hanging around with chickadees and nuthatches so they must have the same diet.
Goodluck, hope you can get more info!
