About Us FAQ 2 (Juvenile Bluebird)

If the bird has feathers and can fly short distances, it has probably just left the nest; the parent birds are likely still around and will be looking after it until it can fend for itself. Shut any cats or dogs indoors and if necessary place the baby bird up in bushes or on a tree branch where you first found it, out of harm’s way from predators. For more information, click here.

If, after observing carefully for a few hours, you are sure the baby bird needs help, and it is not an invasive pest species (starling, kiskadee, sparrow, pigeon, feral chicken) follow the directions above for an injured bird.

If you find a baby Longtail (see photo below) out of its burrow on the ground or on the sea, put it gently in a cardboard box (using a towel to protect your hands) and take it to the Aquarium (tel: 293 2727). NEVER remove a baby longtail from its burrow.  The chicks are left alone for long periods while the parent birds fly out to sea for food and it has not been abandoned.
