If Feeding Is Necessary

If you find a baby bird that needs to be fed but are unable to contact a bird or wildlife rehabilitator, it is important to know what to feed a baby bird that will provide similar nutrition to its natural diet. While every wild bird has a different diet, several types of food can serve as emergency rations when necessary. At the same time, it is critical to understand that baby birds have very different nutritional needs than adult birds, and the foods you would normally feed to your backyard birds are not appropriate for young fledglings.


Acceptable foods for baby birds:

Moist dog food
Raw liver
Hard boiled eggs
Dog biscuits
Dog or cat kibble

What NOT to feed baby birds:

Water
Bread
Whole birdseed
Milk
Pet bird food
Worms

The more mature a baby bird is, the more "adult" food it can consume without harm, and the longer it can go between feedings.
