That's probably why. IIRC, if it's a robin, they're not herbivores...they don't eat nuts and berries. They eat worms and maggots...stuff like that. Either that, it just could've been dying anyways.

Wild baby birds unfortunatly die very easily in the hands of humans, no matter how well they are taken care of. Even if you feed them and care for them properly, there is always a pretty high chance.

Adult birds are a different story. Generally they can recover quicker and adapt to being cared for by humans. Some adult birds realize they are in trouble, so they accept help from a human being.

A Robin? That was an owl, hawk, or eagle. Look at the gold eyes. Robins have narrow black slits for eyes. Hawks and other birds of prey have a line of bone above their eye for eye protection during sustained high pressure flight.

Also, look at the feather coloring. It is a distinct hawk, eagle, or owl coloring. Nothing even resembling a Robin.

The size of this baby bird is also characterization of a young bird of prey. This bird is just a tiny bit smaller than a full grown Robin.

This is definitely a bird of prey and should still be turned over to the proper animal identification specialists should you have the bird still.

I am sorry to hear about this bird though. Makes me sad.
