The spring and summer is orphan season. If you find an orphaned bird on the ground, it’s best to leave it alone. Baby birds will often fledge (leave the nest) prior to their ability to fly. This is common and their parents will still take care of them even if they are on the ground. If the bird is in danger, you can move it to a safer place.
I found a baby bird, what shall I do?
