Identifying and feeding an abandoned baby bird.

Who/What am I?

We rescued a baby bird this afternoon. It's beginning to get gray feathers.


Other than that, it's pretty difficult to describe. We just aren't sure what type of bird it is. We have Tuft Titmouse, bluejays, bluebirds, martins and more in the neighborhood.

My daughter watered down dogfood and fed it to the bird using an eyedropper. It is eating and seems to be asking for more. I suggested she wait at least a little while before giving it more. It's "balloon is full". :0)

Any suggestions you might have would be greatly appreciated. How much to feed it, how often, what environment should we try to create (it's "nest"), the temperature we need to keep, and anything else you might think we need to know.

Thank you so much for trying to help us help this little bird.
