A BABY WOODPECKER RESCUED!!

BABY BIRD

I wish i could upload here the video of a baby wood-pecker rescued by us!! It was a tiny baby. First of all, when i was driving and coming to home, i found a baby being attended by a stranger and asked my father, what was it. He answered, it might be owl and i came back to our house. That baby was near the compound wall of our neighbour with whom we don't have a cordial relationship. I asked my father to take it back to our home as the stray dogs are eyeing on the baby bird and he gladly accepted my request and brought it to our home. As we four were about to leave the home within 2hours, we were quite worried about the baby as noone would be there at home to accompany it. So, my father called the care-taker of this house, he suggested to ask another neighbour to keep the baby as they had many birds in their house and their house is never bereft of people and informed us that it was a woodpecker's baby. Hence, i messaged my good-neighbour to keep it and he fortunately was willing to accept the baby and it's still surviving. I'm glad that my family serviced the baby for few hours. P.S. It hid under the dining table as it was scared like anything.

I hope the baby will be turned back into the wild when it gets older.

Why didn't you just get it as your pet instead ?

as noone lives in home at day-time and this area is visited by cats most of the times.. my baba doesn't stay here.. my brother goes to his school and me to my university and my mom to her office.. so, i had no other option..

@anya12adwi Oh i see . That's understandable why you let him be adopted instead . It's a good thing somebody took him in .
