High Hopes

IF´´Balloon``(sorry for coming with this old one,I didn´t had time for something new)
just some info i could get and post, like Jennifer suggested,for thouse of you,bighearted people who find and try to save baby birds fallen from the nest-when you can´t find a veterinary or
a specialized help in good time. Better to repeat also the things I found,talking with an old romanian doctor
From his experience:

1.if the nest is found and you put the bird back,supervise it in first24hour to see if the parents are not rejecting the baby
2.if you can´t find a specialized help,never feed the bird before you know which species it is:the diet can be different from one to another( fresh insects all can take):with less food-you have a hungry baby;with too much food-you can have a dead one;
3.the baby -bird should be placed in a warm place,as similar as possible with his nest:in a dark box or half covered one:most of them are photophobic and stressed in an open place,if they never left the nest.If they are big enough an open space is indicated so they can practice the fly.I´ve heared there are some special electric-warm boxes for kitten which can be used as well to keep the bird warm enough.
The food should be hashed in very little pieces or made a paste,the water or this paste can be gived by serynge.There are some birds who can not toleratte the seeds the thrush is well known for it.The same for blackbird,she can take though canary food.Big atention with the earthworm(angleleworm):this one can transfer a lethal parasit,better to get red worm or others worms( head off and paste made) which can be found on fisher shops. Never use ants .
Other things blackbirds,thrush,nightingale(and other from the same family ) can eat:
instant piure for babies(Milupa,for ex),boiled egg especially the yolk,cow cheese(but is a special one in Romania...not sure is the same caw cheese everywhere),little pieces of cow heart,fruits and vegetable a big list(f.ex:apple,chery,banana,
carrot,winegrapes without seeds etc.),cow meat made
almost like a paste. You can aplly this menu also to spparows, rocklet, raven,including seeds.Also if you give them bread,neved give fresh one.Feed them 3 times a day-not in the night,unless is a night-bird.Don´t bring too many people and activity around .The ''stress'' factor is also a deadly one for little wild birds.
exist also a birds book by Doris Quinten (I don´t know the title)where she give some info about how the wild baby birds
can be treated.

I hope this informations can help...

appologies for my awfully english :(

I really love this! Composing the two main objects in opposite corners and drawing her leg lifted really makes it look like she is about to lift off. Very nice job.
