New Help

The kids and I found a little bird this morning and have no idea what it is and what to do with it. It looks like a young bird (it can't seem to fly properly yet). It has a pointed beek. It is grey in colour with a few whitish stripes on the cheeks. It also has feathers on it's feet.

It has been rainig and i thought maybe this has made it hard for the bird to fly.

I will post a photo when i work out how.

If anyone can help us we would be very greatly appreciated.

Hi
If you can find the appropriate local wildlife rescue people then they may be able to help.

In NSW it's WIRES 13 000 WIRES - (13 00 094 737)

Not sure about other states. Alternatively, look if there is a nest near where you found it and whether there is a way to put the chick back up. If not, and you cannot find a wildlife rescue org, take it to your local vet who may also be able to help.

The important thing is not to handle it too much. Place a small towel or similar item of clothing at the bottom of a box. Transport via that. Keep it away from pets, kids and humans and noises as well, so a dark, cool place will do until you can take it.
