My local Nextdoor group constantly has posts asking what to do with an injured bird. What would you do if you found an injured bird in your garden?
- Do nothing. It’s sad but will be another animal’s dinner soon enough.
- Take it to the local animal sanctuary or vet.
I would post about it on Nextdoor and do what they say
Depends on the bird really and the injuries. Injured pigeon or sparrow - let nature take its course. Injured large or uncommon bird - probably call an animal charity or something. Injured pet bird - try to catch it and take it to a vet.
I find myself annoyed by the hypocrisy of people fretting about a pigeon but happy to support factory farming, but I’m not much different myself.
I once tried to save a juvenile sparrow that must have left the nest a bit too early and couldn’t fly. Next door’s cat was on the hunt. I think I read that they can hide for a few days until they fly so I put him in a box in a cold frame and gave him a worm (probably useless). I left him there for the night and was happy to see that he’d survived the night, escaped from the cold frame, and was hopping about the patio.
A few hours later he’d managed to hop around the front of the house, down the path, down some steps, and was hanging around on the pavement. I could do no more and wished him a bon voyage.
In the evening I saw that he’d been run over.
I was actually pretty upset about it all. Still managed to eat chicken that night though.
Ring the RSPB and see what they say.
