What are they?
Yesterday I got a call from the rodeo grounds about some baby birds that had been found. Amazingly enough they came from a horse trailer that had just arrived from Montana. When the people were cleaning out the manure the babies fell out.
I have no idea what species these are but as you can see in the photo, all four are barely as big as a chicken egg. I think they're about three or four days old and require feeding every hour. Their beak shape tells me that they're bug eaters so I'm giving them a variety of protein rich food and hope they make it. I have no idea how long they went without food but so far so good.
