Young birds

Can I please remind everyone that most birds will leave the nest before they can fly and will go to the ground,Parents will come to they to feed them and will encourage them to fly, this can take a little while, but is natural so if you find a bird who is fully feathered on the ground before picking it up and “helping” it watch for parents to come to feed, they will be quick so if you don’t continually watch you may miss them as they do not want to draw attention to their young.Most parents will return within an hour except for pigeons who could take a few hours and babies will sit on a fence for hours waiting for their return.
