Feathered...

If it's a non-human, non-Pit Bull, family member, post it here!

We have been raising this kiddo since his sibling was killed by one of Larry's dogs :x
It is a Magpie...

I had to save it - it was "next"! :(

He/she is doing really well but I'm not sure when to release it...??

Sorry, he/she has food in his feathers - messy eater!

Oh, s/he is pretty! I am so glad you were able to save him!

Don't baby birds "imprint" on people?

I think but his eyes were open already so it should not have too badly(said the bird "expert" ha ha)?

We DID raise a Starling once from the time his eyes came open and that was a very fun bird to have around but it imprinted badly - so much so that while bird-sitting, my parents LOST the bird, well, it flew away, and a few days later it showed up at their neighbor's place, trying to get the gal to FEED IT :shock:

She then brought it back to my folks' and we resumed being it's "parents" but Starlings don't do well if they can't eat an all meat diet and he didn't live to more than about a year of age. But it made lots of cool noises and was a fun bird, all the same, just wish he'd lived longer :(

Call a nature or bird sanctuary -- they should be able to give you some answers about releasing him. I bet he sticks around your home when he's released! :)

I still want a full list of everything that lives at your house!

That bird is beautiful, although a messy eater.
