Baby Bird

This past weekend we found three babies birds that had fallen from a nest.  Two of the birds were dead and one was still breathing and opening its beak.  Sydney of course wanted to care for the baby bird.  If I had thought about the infirmary at the zoo I could have called and tried to take the bird.  We felt helpless but Sydney carried it around in a bucket all afternoon.  We explained that the bird really needed a momma bird to take care of it and it was not going to live.  My mom works at a nature center and and they have an infirmary, if I lived in Michigan we could have taken it in and it may have survived.  I hate to see any animal suffer and I wish we could have done more to help.
