During spring and summer it is common to find baby birds on the ground, with no sign of their parents. In most cases human interference is not necessary. As birds grow up they go through a fledging stage where they deliberately leave the nest before they are fully able to fly. They then spend a few days feeding on the ground whilst their flight feather continue to grow. Whilst you may not be able to see the parents around, it is extremely unlikely for a parent to abandon a fledgling, and they are more likely to be away collecting food or hidden close by.
Take a look at our infographic below which guides you through the best practise for finding a baby bird. If in doubt, please contact us on 21347645/6 and we can advise you further.
