Often people find baby birds alone in the spring and summer and think they’re in danger. Most the time, they’re OK, and “rescuing” them can put them in danger.
If you find young birds that appear to be abandoned, there’s now a guide to help you know what to do. Mass Audubon has a primer on its website called “Baby Birds Out of the Nest“, along with a shareable poster. I inserted a .jpg verion below.
