Found a little bird that managed to fly through the gate of my house. I think it's injured. Not flying, barely moving, but alive. What do?
Methinks it's a hummingbird
check its wing bones and legs, if they're broken or fractured, reset the bone, find two tongue depressers and use it for a splint, nurture the bird, wait for it to fly around again, release, be proud
yes it's a hummingbird of course. they need to drink a huge amount of nectar in order to survive. look up the recipe for hummingbird nectar online it's just sugar and water. maybe he's just exhausted. if he's truly injured he was probably already dying
I already put a small cup of sugar water for them to drink to no avail. It just sits there and if I try to force it, it returns to its normal state of sitting position
Looks like he was already dying bro. He might have gotten batted around by a cat or something.
I would suggest just leaving him near where you found him, please don't euthanize him as he may just fly away eventually
OP you should give him a bath in a dish that's microwaveable safe and microwave his ass...
Only way he could've flown through
I fix birds all the time. Get a glass of water and drip from your finger onto it's lil' beak to hydrate him and coat a pinecone in lard and seed and leave it in there. Stick some towel in the bottom and leave it in the dark and see if he pulls through. Chances are he'll be dead by morn but worth a shot.
Last patient is pic related, pulled through and was a nice little buddy.
Those kind of bird can't walk because of natural evolution, their life style make them fly all the time. However they can stand on a stick. Their bones are really fragile so he might have a broken wing.
What seeds/pine cones? I live in a cold, foggy ass city and stuff like this isn't common for me to just go get. Here's its little home atm with a little thing of sugar water
Give it something to drink as said in thread... Then cover the bucket with a blanket so no light will enter, if in shock this will calm him down.
After 1-2 hour go outside to a location where it can fly up easy and remove the blanket if he should fly out now. If he doesn't fly try get him going by gently tapping him.
Called him Little Thang and he sat on my hat while he was healing.
Parents are buttholes and not gonno let me bring it in, just outside, in garage. Vet's aren't close, and the numbers I've tried left me leaving a message, which I didn't bother cuz it took too long to listen through the whole message. Ratio is 4 parts water, 1 part sugar. I may have bs'd the ratio though
He really looks like he just ran into the gate and is discombobulated. He probably ran straight into it at full speed. They can actually fly 50mph. You may want to hold him in your hand to help keep his body temperature up.
OP, are you gunna build it a home and take care of it, or do something worth sticking around for? If you're not gunna burn it, cum on it, or kill it, why would you post this stupid shit on /b/?
So far I've read that it'll eat tiny insects like fruit flies, stuff to give it some protein and shit. Need to learn more about what it'll eat before I go insect hunting. Much too lazy to webm it (have no clue how to since I've never looked at it LOL)
And I'll take care of it i guess.
Gdfo if you want live action burn-on-cross like bird jesus stuff. But I may kill it within 5 or so hours if the bird isn't active. I'll check on it every 15 minutes, or every game of hearthstone.
Take this to >>>/an/ they can actually help you.
bird I tried to save last summer. too much damage though. He died 3-4 days after
Roll 69 for set on fire
Roll 45 for Cum on it
Roll quads for bird in blender
The sugar water is your best bet.
Keep him warm. towels, and maybe a small box inside (like one for Christmas ornaments) so he can hide. also is that red blood? polysporin it. All else fails, he dies but you tried.
rebumping with 3 squirrels I saved.
Wildlife has it's way of showing up on my doorstep
>returns to its normal state of sitting position
>mfw my girlfriends mom rescued a baby squirrel, but ended up killing it because she gave it a bath
Le new thread for those that want to help and not burn it on the stake will be moving back and forth between threads. So ya, guy said ruby throated humminbird coolio. What food should I give it? Insect hunting? Poppy seeds? (jk idek)
Why would she bathe it?
I found 1 in my driveway and honestly was going to keep it, then an hour later outside found 2 more so I turned them in.
They were so flea infested though. But so cute .I have videos of them eating corn, and it's just the cutest.
also bump with a non blurry picture.
why your parents wont let you bring it home? are they fucking retarded? its not gonna hurt them.. heartless monsters, yet they probably praise some stupid god
atleast you are a good guy
My younger brother accidentally mashed up one of my birds when he was a baby.
Unfortunate because it was healthy other than lost pinions so he'd have been sticking around a while. Already sat on my shoulder and didn't try to flee.
>why your parents wont let you bring it home? are they fucking retarded? its not gonna hurt them.. heartless monsters, yet they probably praise some stupid god
>atleast you are a good guy
You. I like you. Ya parents assume it has fucking rabies or some shit. I don't necessarily blame them, but in my mind even if it had it, I wouldn't be scared to help it like wtf parents.
Called 6504887363 --> redirected to 6503408200. (Nearest vet/animal care) time to let the authorities take control.
They're coming in a little while with a delay. Afraid it'll die by the time they get here. I'll go keep it warm.
Squirrels have a heavy cesium content in their tails (hence why they are so poofy) so if they get submerged they cause a violent exothermic reaction and effectively cook the squirrel alive.
lol mainly only mammals have rabies. every animal that can pass it to the hummingbird would just eat it. and even if this fucking bird somehow managed to get rabies, he cant bite you anyway. im sorry you have to live with them
>Even my girlfriend called her out for being clueless.
>someone does something trying to be good and helpful
>it makes them feel awful
>child then chastizes them like then didn't know they made a mistake
awesome girlfriend you got there
my friend had a bird and his baby sister smashed its head multiple times on concrete because she thought the bird said moron to her.
