Ok - I am in Hawaii, baby bird on my balcony. I noticed this at 8 am. We thought it was dead so we went to breakfast, worked out, walked and came back to our room 2 hours later. Bird is now moving a little, pooping all over the place but still not moving too much. I called Wild Life Foundation in Hawaii, took photo of bird and sent a text to the person who answered the phone. She said that the bird is a finch and due to the fact that it’s not a Native bird, they are not able to help me. So.... she told me to contact the Humane Society. Well, husband and I were convinced that this bird is fledging. He’s now hopping around, trying to move it’s wings and showing signs that he’s healthy and wanting to fly. Came back from dinner and bird is now sleeping. I made a make-Shift nest with a wheat thins box, (cut top off) and a few torn tissues. Bird went into makeshift box and is sleeping. What shall I do in the morning (Friday) as we are leaving on Saturday? I need advise. If I leave the bird behind it will probably be disposed of by the hotel staff once I’m gone? Should I try to call the Humane Society to see if they will take the bird? I find this to be quite disturbing. There are many feral cats around the resort (all over the island) so I can’t leave it in a bush. The side of the property where we are staying, there are not trees against the property where I would find a nest. I am lost but can’t just ignore this situation. Any advise? Bird has feathers, I fed it some crushed up blueberry and it seemed to be very hungry. I am at a loss?
