Need help with identification

by Kim roberts
(Marion, IN)


Had a huge wind storm come through and this baby probably got blown out of the nest. Was still there the next morning so we brought it in since there are cats in the neighborhood. We breed parrots so we do have a variety of seed but it is not eating that. There is red in the front and back feathers, eyes are open

He looks like he may be a juvenile Northern Cardinal. But he may have just been puffed up by the storm.

need help with identification
by: Brook

Hi Kim, If it is indeed young it would be too young to eat seed, it's diet would consist of protein and a lot of it. I think it might be a finch but it is too early for hatchlings, are you certain it is a young bird? I can't think of any similar species that would be at that stage of development yet. Maybe someone else will have more information. If you need assistance you can call the nearest Audubon Society and they will advise you.
