Help, what to do?

My husband has just found this little one and we really don’t know what to do! Other than keeping him in a safe and warm place. Any suggestions?

I think that is all you can do, try to leave water and some tiny grain if you have it (porridge made with water?). Good luck!

It is very hard with birds, isn’t it? A few years ago my Setter Tosca brought me a live Jay held gently in her jaws. I couldn’t see any obvious injury but it obviously couldn’t leave, so I put it in some dog fur (plenty of that round here) with some water easily reachable, but by the next day it was dead.

I left its body on top of a stump overnight and in the morning it was gone. Perhaps the Owl patrol had done their job. Do they take carrion?

Yesterday there was no action needed when I saw a small sparrow sized bird floating dead in my swimming pond. Difficult to tell but it seemed to be black or dark grey with a white collar. Again, over the fence away from the dog for the night patrol to dispose of.
