House sparrow care

Tuesday, March 31, 2009 Stef dela Cruz 4 Comments


If you find a wild bird - say, a house sparrow, how do you care for it?

I found a website that discusses how to provide warmth, food, hydration, and many other issues regarding how to care for a young sparrow. Check out the website:

Here's another website of a non-profit organization that deals specifically with rescuing wild birds: They have provided me with a lot of information, answering my questions very patiently. You may email them at

It's very difficult for a wild bird to survive if it wasn't raised by its parents. Every young bird that comes to your care is a big challenge and a noble undertaking. You will need all the help you can get.
