The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
See if you can find the nest.....if you can see it but can't reach it and the parents are nearby, try to make a nest out of a plastic cup and fasten it to a tree (out of the cat's reach). See if the parent will feed it from there. If you can't do the above and the baby needs care, gently pick it up and put it in a cup with tissue, or use a tee shirt to make a little nest. Put this in a box and cover it with a lid of some kind. Put the bird in a safe, quiet place.
Keep it warm! You can put a zip-lock bag with warm water in it next to the bird. Don't give food or water.
