I recently took in 4 orphaned starlings (baby birds) as they blew off the roof of a mall in a wind storm now I do orphaned animals all the time so my brothers gf brought them to me it's been over a week now and I feel so bad for bird moms lol the babies are always hungry I feed them every hour throughout the day but they want food every 10min the poor mother birds with such demanding children thankfully they will be ready to be released soon

i admire those who take care of helpless animals. there is always a soft part in our heart towards animals. it is interesting that you are learning from them. our encounters with the animals seem to expand our own knowledge and understanding of ourselves. i hope the birds will be fine when you release them.

I have plenty of patience with them just saying poor mother birds as that's all they do all day. They can't have vegtablesband grains they are to young only bird formula right now and then we have to start seeing them on to bugs in a few weeks

Oh yes,i have seen in documentaries how they always cry.. they are like human babies.. Good thing they are not so noisy for us people- but i wonder hat the mother bird feels- she must always be in a panic.

Its hard especially when they are so hungry and the change in environemnt. I found a baby bird on my front lawn about a week or so ago. It was confused and the neighbours cat was chasing it. I brought it in my backyard and within a few hours the Mother found it (thankfully). But I wonder if they will find their Mother again or just move on. But they are being raised, and given the proper care before releasing them which is very important.
