What type of little bird this !


This bird was found, so I was told, in a bar flapping around. Someone one took it home, stuck it in a cage 24/7 till I took it to my home . I let him out of the cage all day to hop in the grass and to peck away. I cage him at nite.

I think its a sparrow. It can't fully fly, yet it can fly short distances and but not very high. Not sure of the age, & not even sure if it's a sparrow.

If anyone can be of help in telling me what it what could be and the best course of action I should be doing in getting in getting him back in the wild.


Thank you !


Rebecca

what type of bird is this NEW
by: Brook

Hi, This is a young bird who's wings have not yet fully developed. It needs lots and lots of protein to survive. Looking at it's beak I'd guess it's a woodpecker so if this is so it would love ants, beetles, flying insects, etc. Hopefully someone will let you know specifically the details of it's species.

The best thing to do at this point would be to turn it over to your local Audubon Society and they will strengthen it so it can survive the winter. Audubon or a wildlife care center is the best option for the bird's survival.

not a sparrow NEW
by: Anonymous

it's definitely not a sparrow - try googling types of thrush - speckled breast gives it away - also the long beak
well done for keeping it alive so far
