Baby Bird - 3
Here comes the third installment and blog about the the baby bird we found.
This is a link to the prior blog and pictures of how small he was when we found him.
As you can tell he's grown a lot and is now trying to fly, sitting on my finger. He kind of flies like one of those first airplaines, meaning he runs, flaps his wings, and manages a short jump in the air.
He continues to eat like crazy. But instead of eating every twenty minutes he is now OK if he gets a meal once or twice per hour. His favorite is moist dog food mixed with apple sauce.
The longest we've left him is a couple of hours. Apparently he got real hungry, since he managed to get out of what we thought was a safe cage, and was sitting on the front porch waiting for us when we returned home.
He made it clear he was not happy with our absence.
During the day we keep him in the back yard and he's free to run around as much as he wants to. So far he stays within a safe distance and jumps up on a finger when we ask him to.
