First Baby Bird

We had our first baby bird of the year yesterday; it was a young collered dove. It is too young to feed itself so is being hand fed and doing well. If you find young birds in the garden and they are not in danger please leave them where they are and observe them for at least 2 hours. The parent birds will come to feed them within this time. Most birds leave the nest before they can fly and will hide when danger is near. This stage of their growth is when we call it a fledgling
