Baby fell out of the tree. She couldn’t fly very well in the wind, so I picked her up and put her back in her nest :)
Hoorah! PUT BABY BIRDS BACK IN THE NEST GUYS and if you can’t reach the nest but you can see it and the parents are hanging around, you can make a little makeshift nest. THE PARENTS WILL STILL CARE FOR IT the idea that they’ll smell you and reject it is a myth started by people who didn’t want their kids handling wild animals.
Just a quick reiteration of a spring/summertime psa.
That myth is all the more ridiculous once you realize that birds have terrible senses of smell
I’m so happy that someone other than me knows the whole smell and mother birds thing is fake, you guys, think about how many people believe in that myth and have let baby birds die…
THIS IS MY NEW FAVOURITE LINE
Having a pet is so weird. Like neither of you speak each other’s language and yet you form some strong bond by rubbing against each other and sleeping together and you might accidentally kick them in the face or step on their tail once in a while but at the end of the day you two are best buddies from entirely different species.
