Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

Hi Guys, Just found this injured little bird in my garden. Not sure what species, very small and young. It is injured cannot fly, have put it in a covered shoe box with some crumbs, chopped fruit. I cannot see it surviving, however if any of you knowledgeable birders can advise I will try and help it.

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

Cant offer any advice except

I would leave it somewhere it can get free. I had a similar thing last week when a baby (wood pigeon) fell out of its nest in a tree in my garden. It was fairly mature baby ( if that makes sense) and I think just a bit stunned. It let me come right up to it. I decided to just leave it and check every hour on status. After about 3 hours it flew off.

I agree yours doesn't look to well.

An uncropped shot of a Grey Heron in the afternoon sunshine at Carlton Marshes. I am still sometimes surprised by the reach of the 300mm f4 and MC-14 teleconverter.

RSPB advice is leave it alone. Mum will sort it, if the cat does not get there first. Definitely keep the cat in....

Speckled Mousebird 13 in by philip Gate Keeper, on Flickr

Speckled Mousebird or Colius Striatus by philip Gate Keeper, on Flickr

These Mousebirds (images cropped) are not very popular here, as they love to come and feast on the fruits until everything is gone. As birds go, they can get to approx 13 inches in height.
