Wild Care Talks Baby Birds and Nests
From the fine people at Wild Care Cape Cod in Eastham:
Wild Care Friends! We hope your day is as lovely as this robin’s nest, seen in a shrub in Orleans.
Baby Bird season is upon us. If you find a bird nest, keep cats indoors, and let the feathered parents do their thing. Enjoy nature’s beauty from a distance!
If you find a baby bird and think it is orphaned, call our Wildlife Helpline for advice. Do not give it food or water. Warmth and quiet is most important. You can often put babies back into their nest.
Wild Care can help! 508-240-2255.
