A few things to keep in mind if a wildlife bird falls out of a nest, many times the rehabilitator suggest to not handle the bird and to keep an eye on it, rather than remove the bird from it's environment. In a case like this call for advise.
We are also hearing of new cases of the Avian Flu with particularly, Eagles, Crows, Canadian Geese and migrating birds coming to Mass. Most birds are scavenger feeding birds that are spreading the virus. We do recommend to use cautions if you see a sick bird and or a dead bird in your environment. Tufts University has been working on testing these birds along with the state tracking these cases. Avian Flu can be harmful to Humans and Caution is advised. You can look online for more state updates.
