    The nerve of him. I was just sitting here eating my lunch and he decided to join in on MY car.

    Today, my parent's friends brought me a sparrow since they knew I was big on birds. Apparently their cat brought this little fellow and they don't know where it was from, where are the parents, etc. I can't refuse a bird in need so I thought I might give it a try but this is more challenging...

    Hi, A friend of mine is moving and she was going to get rid of her bbq grill, but it turns out there's a house sparrow nest in it, with a baby who is not yet fledged. She thinks the parents are around and will return to the nest but right now it's just the baby. We're trying to figure out what...

    Hi, My cat caught an adult house sparrow this morning. He's toothless and doesn't seem to use his claws when hunting, so I was surprised to find it bloody. I've since discovered it has gaping injuries on its back and side that appear at least a day old (I didn't want to prod much) and one wing...

    Hi all, A friend of mine told me that her dog attacked a sparrow. She brought the sparrow to the emergency vet, who confirmed that the sparrow had no puncture wounds, but that the sparrow did have a dislocated shoulder and thus could not yet be released. My friend brought me the sparrow. When...

    Hi again... you helped me a great deal last time I was around... so much that a dove on the verge of death now lives a happy ..albeit post PMV life. Today the missus brought home a fledgling sparrow. She didn't really have the option to leave it be. The place where she works was adamant that it...

    HI, I've been raising hatchling/nestling sparrows and pigeons this summer and am looking for some advice about 1 -2 day old sparrows. They are either brought to me or I pick them up and have been handled by a few people by the time I get them. I know to keep them warm and to feed them...

    My daughter and I were at a flea market, we were getting ready to walk in the building and noticed a baby bird on its back, breathing heavy, picking it up , it chirped, and was able to move its wings, one leg looks hurt, we brought it home with us, and I googled information on what to feed it...

    Hey guys, I feed a couple of feral pigeons in my front yard that most likely have pmv. I read that doves can be carriers without falling ill but can sparrows? The sparrows drink and eat from the same bowls the pmv pigeons do and when I went out to get my pet pigeons from the aviary a sparrow was...

    I'm torn between keeping Erwin or letting him go. I have been away all week at my home in the city & Erwin did great due to the help I received at this awesome forum & seemed very happy. I don't have a computer there so I couldn't keep you updated on him. Before I left Suffield county & went...

    Hello. I have another sparrow (male) here. He is in better shape than the last female. I'm starting with the antibiotics NOW just in case. He is fluffed up and he let me caught him, but he started "squeaking" (not squeaking, but dunno how to call that. It was clearly a complaining noise). When I...

    Hello. I posted a thread a while back about a very sick sparrow. http://www.pigeons.biz/forums/f30/very-sick-adult-sparrow-44811.html I was brought another one in a similar condition today. Very weak, adult, emaciated, and dying. She doesn't smell bad and isn't covered in poop, though. Help...

On of "my" dogs (not mine but he's at home while he recovers from a severe case of scabies, hehe) came running towards me and I saw this...

It looks like he has eatenbecause his crop looks sort of full and he did a poop. Is there anything I can do for it ? It doesnt fly away when...

    Now I have to point out right up front now, SPOGGY WAS HAVING A BALL IN THIS! OHHHHH how I wish I had sound. He was making these excited noises like we had never heard before! This is I guess, the sparrow equivalent of the tossing of a toddler in the air and catching him and shouting -...
