My son just found this baby bird. The head and back are green, brighter than Olive. The chest is yellow. the sides appear to be grey. I have enclosed a picture. And what would be the best thing to feed and do with him or her. Please help we love animals and want to do what is best for it... Thank You...What species is it??????


You can go here to read about feeding wild baby birds. Ideally it would be best to put him back into the nest. If you can't find the nest, another option is to find a local nature rehabilitation center.
Good luck,
