It’s our number one call, you’ve found a defenceless little baby bird and you rush to put a call into the RSPCA. We love that so many people want to help our tiny feathered friends, but it’s important to make sure they ARE abandoned before coming to their rescue. Falling out of the nest is often just a part of learning how to fly, so make sure the bird isn’t in immediate danger and keep an eye out for returning parents. If they don’t show up by the hour mark, then you know it’s time to put in a call to the RSPCA.
