Also, "lunch" happens about once an hour during the day.

Does your robin drink anything?



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

when we were feeding a fledge here, I read that worms provide all the nutrients that they need.

edit: and trying to feed liquid was bad

It does not yet seem to grasp the drinking water thing yet. So I dip most food in a glass of filtered water before I feed it to him/her.

I tried to give it flying lessons today. I seriously doubt its wings will support its weight. It hops ok.

We named it Max but that can be swapped for Maxine I guess.

Did you find a baby bird or bunny in your yard? Here's what you can do to help

[www.startribune.com]

Surprise!

You find a baby robin beneath the tree in your front yard.

Uh-oh, orphan.

You get a box, some soft rags or a towel, change jeans and carefully deliver the poor baby to the Wildlife Rehab Center in Roseville.

After a routine health check, a rehab staff member tells you the robin is just fine. Now, you are told, take it home and put it right back where you found it. Chances are that Mom Robin is looking for her youngster.

This applies as well to baby bunnies looking lost and alone in the leaf clutter of your garden.

Young birds, nestbound, get antsy, eager to act grown up. They climb out of the nest, standing on adjacent branches to stretch and look around. They bump into each other. They fall to the ground.

I grew up on a farm.

I'd a left it alone if the jays and crows would not have been trying hard killing it.
