Not a pet but…
Any words of wisdom on wild baby - actually probably adolescent - birds that adopt us while a broken leg and wing mends?
I recall that wild birds insist on dying in captivity but this guy has stuck it out for a week while Mrs. H feeds him from a syringe. His biological mom has bailed and our attempts to stick him on a branch only result in him falling off like a feathered drunk.
And now we’re invested in him. Moreover the little guy has taken to landing (and crapping) on my head when I go to feed him. Oddly it doesn’t piss me off. Clearly the wing has healed.
