With the spring coming in hurriedly, we are getting many baby birds that are coming in as orphans.
The black-rumped flameback woodpecker came to us as a rescued fledgeling. It was found grounded, unable to fly. It was found to be dehydrated and light weight suggesting starvation. With proper treatment and nutrition, and ample flight practice, the bird is getting better and soon will be released back in nature.
We also received a black kite baby that fell from its nest as the parents never returned. It was hungry and dehydrated. It is under our constant care now.
We have also received a few hatchling rose-ringed parakeets that were rescued from the city. A hollow branch of a tree fell down where the nest was located. The babies are now being raised at our centre, in specialized brooders. They will receive special formula food for optimum growth. We are appealing the public to be careful with trimming and cutting trees, many birds breed during this time of the year.
