beautiful baby bluebirds


i haven't been on much lately i'm just am loaded down with baby birds, but i had to share with you these two little sweeties.
they were attacked by sparrows that wouldn't allow the parents in to feed them so they had to be pulled and brought to me.
the one with the swollen eye was pretty much scalped, you can see by the first pic that the swelling has gone down a lot.
i have them both on oral baytril, antibiotic eye drops and the one with the worst eye is on metacam for pain and swelling

It's house sparrows that usually do this. Not our different kinds of native sparrows. They can be really mean. They will go into nests and kill the parents and babies if they can and take over the nest. They will even just go ahead and build a nest right over the dead babies. They aren't really sparrows at all, but a member of the weaver finch. But they are called house sparrows. This is one of the reasons why many people don't like having them around. They drive out our native birds.

BTW Jodi, they are really precious. Too bad about having to break up the family. I love bluebirds. So pretty.
