During spring and summer it is common to find baby birds on the ground, with no sign of their parents. 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. In most cases human interference is not necessary.
Take a look at our infographic below which guides you through the best practice for finding a baby bird. If in doubt, please contact us on 21347645/6 and we can advise you further.
