Default **!!!URGENT!!!** bird Help!!!

As I was eating a cookie 10minutes ago, I spied what looked like a rock fell out of a tree, then I saw it was a moving bird!

I went outside and picked it up, no other bird, except a crow and 2 blue birds fighting were there. So I chased it through the dog pin,where my dog almost ate it, and into the driveway where I caught it. It wasn't bleeding, and had no apparent injuries, but it could not seem to fly for more than a foot, and looked like a chick crossed with a brown adult, not shiny, and a wide, triangular shapped beak that is yellow.

I have it in a kitty cage with clover bedding, a leaf nest, and a few twigs, an a small cup of water.


ANY HELP I can do to this bird to comfort it until it either dies or can fly again.

AND: Should I feed it worms, or sunflower seeds?

Can you find a picture of what it looks like?

I heard that you should put injured birds somewhere warm as they loose alot of body heat when they are not flying and possibly through shock

Its destined to be warm, dispite flooding in tennesse, it is in the bird cage outside, in indirect sunlight.

It looks like this, it is COMPLETELY brown with the exception of its beak.

You have a local zoo? Or any type of natire/wildlife center or bird sanctuary?

If you do, call them up and ask for advice. My local zoo takes in injured birds sometimes.

I thought this was going to be a thread about girls.

+1

Anyway i'd take it too a local vet. I've found quite a few injured birds,i normally feed them sunflower seeds crushed up,with a little bit of water so it's like a paste and feed them with a syringe.

It was a grackle, but for some odd reason, my sister, just stupid as she is, put it in some nest in the tree he fell out of, dispite grackles having a high rep for living in the corners of our insulation...
