Baby Birds by lockstock Baby Birds by lockstock
These are the boys, day 3 of their rehabilitation. They weren't fond of the paper; nothing to grab hold of, but we kept it short. Six photos for whatever you might need oogly baby birds for.

They look like young crows/ravens to me, they're not starlings as I've rehabed them before and they don't looke like this and they don't have the beak of a robin. They're very cute!

They are grackles. One died but the other one survived and flew off on her own a couple of years ago. :)

Well, you can't really tell when they're all nekkid and stuff, but we're pretty sure that they're grackles (at least the one that has survived is). ^-^

Whatever they are I think their ugly, and really cute. I don't like birds with no feathers relly, but they are still nice. Hard to explain. Really nice shoots, I especially like the third and fifth, looks like he, or she is angry and is ready to attack :P

I put my bet on either a raven or a crow, just by the look of their beaks. If so, you can (hypothetically) keep them as pets, because ravens are highly trainable and smart! Birds are hella messy tho :p My dad had a raven when he was a child, and it took a bath in their tub twice a day, and my dad trained it to scare away other birds from the blueberry patch :lmao:

It's looking like the one that has survived so far is either a crow or a grackle. Either way, we'll need to make sure it can take care of itself, and release it into the wild: You can't keep "wild animals" in this area, including things like ferrets and hedgehogs. ^^;

Not that we need another animal around the house, mind you... ^-^

many time ago, I got a baby bird who falls from his nest, I feed him with corn flour with water and sugar (I really don't know how to say it! XD) the vet tell me, and he survived :) of course, I return him to his nest again

They look like it to me.. their feet look big at first.. but the feathers sure hit me.. those are Mocking birds for sure!.. Where I live I have Martin Birds.. & I have their nest right up near the under part of the patio roof.. there's like 6 little eggs there now. The moching birds we've got a lot of them.
I was going to say Pigens but they only have 1 or 2 birds.

Survey says... close, but they're grackles. The feathers on Newton came in black and brown, so he's a she... ^^; It's just about impossible to tell what they are while they've still got the wax on their feathers, though.

:shrug: ok :D I'm so used to the moching birds they are always falling out from their nests or blown out from the wind.. :faint: last year I took in 8 birds.. the youngest was well.. still in the egg ;p the others were a bit bigger so they were easier to hadle & feed them :) BTW the egg never hatched at all so I think it either never developed or had some major trama in the egg as it fell out of the nest.. so Luck 7 of the birds made it :D

Wow, 7 out of 7! That's some admirable skill, there. :clap:

In our part of town, you're most likely to find grackles, starlings, mockingbirds (we heard one the other day that did a fantastic car alarm), and bluejays. Just a bit north, and you wind up with crows, ravens, red-tailed hawks, vultures, seagulls and meadowlarks. :D

I remarked earlier today about how much trouble I'd get myself in if I rescued a baby vulture... :evillaugh:

Yes, grackles to be specific. We'll have to get some pictures of Newton tonight, now that she's got her feathers.

i dont think you will know what they are until their feathers come through completely. a lot of baby birds looks differant as juveniles, plus the bare feather shafts are confusing at a first glance and look like grey featherss..but they arent. lol.

they are ugly as sin, but adoreable at the same time.

Hmmm...I think they might be Starlings...at least they look very like some we recently rescued. Awww - those hilariously big feet, they're so gangly and wobbly on 'em!

Baby birds: The true test of the animal lover. They're not fuzzy (in fact skin-to-baby bird contact is often met with "Bleugh!"), they're not cute (see "Area under wings"), and they make miserable sounds when you disturb them.. and do that weird jumpy-feed-me thing that is somewhat reminiscent of the Alien series.

But they's so adorable!

The beaks look like corvid beaks to me. Though, possibly grackles? Do you have Grackles in your area? Here's a photo of a just-fledged baby grackle: [link]

Newton (the only one that's left :tears: ) looks like either a crow or a (possibly female) grackle. The feathers on his/her back are a sooty grey, but it's looking like the feathers on his/her underside could come in brown. :nod:

Those long, gawky, legs made me immediately think of a grackle.
Both crows and grackles have always been favourites of mine. Crows because they are so smart they get a bit punchy at times... and grackles because... well... they look like zombies.
