Busy time... Baby birds season it is... !

Baby birds are so beautiful and listening to their sweet chirping is even more tranquil. This is the season for infant birds from hatchlings to nestlings to fledglings. At Jivdaya Charitable Trust we receive a huge number of infant birds this season. The infants are of common myna, red-vented bulbul, house crows, house sparrows, etc.
The infants are taught by their parents to fly and survive. They mostly are taught on the ground to hide and survive from predators. People confuse them of being lost or injured and bring them to our center in terms of saving them. But in reality they are being parted away from their parents. This is the nesting season for many birds. Crows are one of them. We, at Jivdaya Charitable Trust are receiving a lot of cases of injured, dehydrated crows or a normal crow who has fallen from its nest. Particularly, we are receiving more jungle crows than house crows. Also in that, we are receiving more infant crows than adults. When an infant crow learns to fly, it often falls on the ground and then, is not able to get up. People then think that the bird is injured or lost. So in order to earn good deed, they bring the infant crow here for treatment but actually they are doing a bad deed by separating the bird from its parents. A very important message to all people is, if you find an infant bird somewhere on the road, search for its nest nearby immediately. If the nest is not there, try to build a nest at a height where the dogs and cats cannot reach. If it is injured badly, then please take it to a nearby hospital or bring it to Jivdaya Charitable Trust. But if you find it just fallen on the road, please put it safely in a nearby nest or just wait for its parents to be back.
We request people to fund us so that we can provide these tiny beautiful infants a healthy life. If found on road please put it back in the direction it was going if not injured. In case of injury take it to a nearby animal hospital.
