What do I do with a juvenile sparrow ?
It is at learning to fly stage, where the mom/pop probably chased it out of the nest, and flew into the house.

The nephew caught it.


We're kinda pissed at him for doing that.


The sparrow was flying inside the house until we caught it, but it's now night time.


I don't wanna confine it, because the last time I did that to a juvenile bird, it died the next morning.

What do i do with this sparrow? I only fed it some water, no food.


I was hoping it would survive till morning so I can let it go but I am not sure if it's able to fly successfully.



Is it a good idea to let it go out at night?

Just kidding. I don't know in all honesty. I think I would probably keep him safe till morning.

I dont know to much but keep it inside at night..in the morning put water and some bird food before let him go ,in the morning will be easy for him to check his familiar surroundings and maybe a group of same birds.it will give a chance to you to look just in case she needs help again.call your local vets, they usually know an animal rescue center ,people etc that you can make contact asap. good luck and thanks for caring.

it's warm there. it won't freeze. find a little nook or space, place it in there, let it spend the night there and sort itself out in the morning.

Baby birds need food several times per hour during the day!! So if you don't let it out you could feed it something soft or let it go or bring it to a bird shelter if you have one. And give it love. hf

I already fed it water.

But I am not feeding it any solid food because I don't know exactly what they eat and the last time I fed mealworms to a juvenile swallow, it died the next morning.

There are usually places that take in abandoned or injured small animals. Either take it to your local veterinarian, or ask him/her to recommend an animal rescue place for it. That's good that you gave it water. Nice that you took it in. You and your child have a kind heart. :)

I caught one once and tried to look after it but it was dead by morning. Then somebody told me that they basically 'fret' to death when confined or handled. Best maybe if you let it go now.

Take it to the veterinarian immediately today. They'll have a vitamin formula they can give it for nourishment. Thanks for doing this for the bird. It's very considerate of you. :)

Re: What do I do with a juvenile sparrow ?
Hmmm...can it fly somewhat?

Actually, maybe you should call your local veterinarian and ask his/her opinion. Probably 2 choices:

1) bring it in to your local veterinarian so he/she can give it a vitamin formula and then go from there.

2) let it outside where you found it. Maybe put it up some place high in a tree, out of reach of cats and larger birds like crows or birds of prey.

Ok I was flying around the room, so I finally decided to let it outside even at night, but let it perch on the clothes hangar, high enough from cats and dogs, so by morning it should hear it's mates chirping and join them.

Re: What do I do with a juvenile sparrow ?
I took care of a juvenile female cardinal one time years ago. She couldn't quite fly yet. She stayed in a large bush and I fed her every two hours during the day with tiny bits of raw hamburger and gave her a little water with an eye dropper. She also liked a little cantaloupe. She followed me around like I was her mother and would even come when I called her, but eventually learned to fly and went off with other cardinals.

The other advice about getting it to a vet is a good idea. In the meantime you could find soft insects, grubs or worms to feed it. Without food it will die and it's not old enough to get food on its own.

Ok, it flew away this morning, I observed it.


No problem, it flew to a nearby tree. Fully flight capable now.


One mission accomplished.
