on top of everything else, i am now keeping in a shoebox a baby bird that fell out of the tree in our garden. i can't reach its nest to restore it to safety (not being able to climb trees to begin with, nevermind having to hold a bird in one hand while attempting it, and having nowhere to prop a ladder nor anyone to hold it for me) and i tried hanging the box off the balcony, at about tree level, so that its mother can come and feed it, but while she is entirely frantic she hasn't been to feed him. what does one feed a bird, i mean one knows what to do with mammals, you give them milk. but what does one feed a baby bird? i am not going to chew up any worms for it, i can tell you that.
