The GSPCA have been extremely busy in recent weeks with huge numbers of baby birds needing hand rearing that have been found or rescued.

Baby birds are always where possible best left in the wild to be rehabilitated by their parents.

Nicolle Morgan GSPCA Animal Care Assistant said “Very recently we have received a few birds nests full of baby birds varying from pinkies as in newly hatched to fledglings (almost fully feathered), mainly due to disruption from gardening activities.”

Baby bird advice from the GSPCA

Submitted by Steve on 15:59, 26th Apr, 2021 | 0

With Spring well underway the GSPCA are asking Islanders to please be mindful of the many fledglings popping up around the Bailiwick. 

The GSPCA would like to remind that as a general rule, it is best to leave baby birds alone.

A baby bird has a greater chance of survival in the wild than it has being hand-reared by man as they learn to fend for themselves and how to forage for food by their parents.

Around 2 weeks after hatching young birds in your Bailiwick garden usually leave the nest, just before they learn how to fly.
