I found a hurt bird!!

(South Alberta)



I found a hurt bird and I really don't know anything about how to take care of it. I'm hoping that someone can tell me the species so I can figure out how to feed it so it can get better!


It's a small dark grey bird with white specks along its back and wings. It's breast is a rusty colour. I found it in a evergreen tree in my back yard. I also live in southern alberta.

please let me know if you have any idea what kind of bird I have!!

Do not feed it kibble, there are hardly any birds that do well on kibble. It is a Robin and it is a juvenile, in order to survive it needs protein. Robins eat bugs and worms. How do you know it is hurt? If it needs medical care it needs to go to your local Audubon Society to survive. Keeping them home and trying to nurse them rarely works unless you know exactly what to do. Make sure it has water!!!!

thrush? NEW
by: Anonymous

Looks like a thrush of some sort and probably eats worms and insects. Try it with some softened cat kibble - I know it isn't in the "how to" books, but the blackbirds in my garden eat two stray cats' leftover kibble that I put out for them.
Good luck.
