I found this guy today, was either having heat stroke or hit a window and was about to get eaten. Seems to be a kingfisher. He's getting better now but he seems really young? He sits on my shoulder and hand without much hesitation, will he be ok to release or do I need to keep him until hes older?
There's no other ones around here either, only ravens and doves. I have no idea how he ended up near the city.
I'm not trying to be malicious op. It's a wild animal and requires different care than a domestic bird. If you are really that adamant about not giving it to a place that has the means to care for it then at least let it go where you found it. Provided it's no longer stunned and doing alright. I know you want to help it but you may end up doing more harm than good.
Actually, I keep small monitors, so I have supplies to suit a softbill. Does he look too young to fend for himself? He seems healthy now after 12 hours but it's hard to imagine him looking after himself outside.
Really cool experience but the faster you get him to a wildlife rehabber the better. Enjoy the experience most things from the wild will die without proper care that you most likely cant give and its a huge commitment
