Fledgling

Hi. This fledgling has been on top of my husbands van all the way to work. Is it old enough to look after itself?  

  • Hi, I am unsure, hopefully someone will come on and advise you. I would say that the bird should be put back to where you think it came from, in case parents are looking for it. I don't know how old it looks.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

  • It's a pretty young Woodpigeon. I'm amazed it didn't fall off if it was hitching a ride on the roof of a van. How did it get on the roof? Can it fly or did it fall from a nest do you think? Not sure if it can fend for itself - it's not a baby so maybe it can. As Catlady suggests returning it to where it came from sounds the best advice.
