Look, unless you also imprinted on Keladry of Mindelan as a child, you can’t truly understand how exciting this was for Russ and I. There were sparrows, people. SPARROWS SITTING ON OUR HANDS.
(Pst - do as I say, not as I do, and don’t feed bread to sparrows. Its okay for them to have a bit now and then, but it’s not really good for them.)
Meet our 1st baby bird patient of the year! This house sparrow arrived with his egg after his nest was destroyed, so we know that he JUST hatched. He’ll need to spend some time in an incubator & will have to be fed every 15 minutes for 12-14 hours each day. Our staff & volunteers actually set timers so they know when to feed the baby birds at our Wildlife Center. If all goes well, we’ll be able to release him in 8-10 weeks.
And of course, when I see sparrows I gotta take pictures of sparrows. They’re just really adorable…
