Bonjour from France
This was discussed two years ago here.
What happened to the robin?
We've got one in our garden in France.
He sits on the table with us and seems desperate for help.
We mush up food which he can thank goodness scoop up and is able to slurp water.
Bread is not enough nutrition. What can we feed him.
I say him because he has the reddeset of red breasta.
He seems to be saying well, Im getting no help from my own kind I'll have a go at the human kind.
Heartbreaking. How common is it?
merci bien a tous!
In reply to Gardenbirder:
Look at him now! Heartbreaking. What is that terrible growth? It's getting bigger too.
He manages to eat by slurping up with his tongue from MOH hand.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
How sad. It is amazing how wild creatures seem to manage in the face of adversity, and your help and kindness will go a long way.
Fingers crossed that help can be sought, though I would imagine it will be difficult to treat such a small creature, though there is no harm trying. Good luck and keep us posted.
