These little babies parent was killed by an animal in my backyard. I was able to save them before it happened to them. I am wondering if y'all can help me by telling me how to care for them, what they are and so on? Thanks in advance!

Hi, I am glad you were able to save these little ones. So far you've done everything right but In order for them to survive and gain the strength they need to survive the winter and/or migrate you need to get them to your local Audubon Society or you can call your local Fish and Wildlife and they will tell you where to take them. Unless you are skilled at raising nestlings and familiar with the species they will not survive and simply knowing what they eat won't help. Whatever you do be sure they have water or they will die quickly. Thank you for caring
