Hey bird friends and foes,
I’ve been absent for a long time, busy with hand-raising orphaned baby birds.
So far in 2015, I have hand-raised 5 Blue Tits, 2 Great Tits and 5 Black Redstarts. 1 Great Tit and the 5 Redstarts are still here awaiting release.
Many sick or injured birds had to be taken to the vet, many birds could be saved, some unfortunately not. :-(
I was on the phone a lot, assisting people who had found baby birds, we drove about 2000 km to the vet in just 1 month, I had to refill the feeders outside on a daily basis to facilitate the integration of the released birds into the bird youngster groups in the yard.
Now I’m very tired. :-) On the picture you can see a Black Redstart fledgling being fed a cricket. :-)
