Mockingbird and baby
[Return to Topics]

a baby mockingbird was stranded on our patio, i caught it (w/gloves), while the parents freaked out. I put the baby in some shrubbery and now they're a couple of yards in a small tree. My question is how to keep the crows at bay?. the parents are very dilengent at defending their baby. I don't think the baby is flying yet. should i try to get it and move it > thanks, i get to emotional about animals. Sincerely, gayle

If the baby is fully feathered, then it will be flying soon, and with the parents watching it, it should be OK. If the baby is still covered with down, then it would be best to put it back in the nest, if you can find it.

Since the parents are watching it, I'd let it be. I have birds that built their nest on a power outlet box by the ceiling of my porch. My kittens live outside on my porch. I figure nature will take it's course when the babies leave the nest because they'll be landing on the porch. Not much I can do unless I'm right there when they finally fall to the porch and I'll take them off then and put them out in the yard if I see it happen.
