Birds are a beautiful part of nature. There beauty never stops to amaze us. This bird was found on street by a man. He first searched for a nest, but it was no where to be found. So, he took it to veterinarian who specialised in taking care of wildlife. This doctor told that it was a song bird and he could look after it until it grows and starts gaining some skin.
You can follow the complete journey of the transformation... You should check it out as its very rare to find out such picture of a bird growing up!! They are ugly... still end up beautiful and full of colours in end.
P.S: How ever, there is a myth that the birds are rejected by its parents it we humans touch it.. So, please do not try this at home.
It still had some shell attached to its body, clearly it was just hatched. The guy searched for the nest, but it was nowhere to be found.
They kept it in an incubator and made sure to carefully control both the humidity and temperature. He called it "Dumpling". You can see the development of wings. And she would squawk every 30-45 mins whenever it needed food.`
By this day dumpling could sit more "sternal", with much more stability.
Over next few nights, it was completely covered in feathers grew into a BIRD!
She could eat 3 large crickets and wax worms every time it squawked.
Later on, she was moved into a more comfortable cage and she was kind of happy although her face did not show it.
It was her first day at perch... It was a big step in obviously correct direction. She did not have a tail
After 2 week from hatching, she was fit and able to balance herself more properly.
She was now in a bigger cage, and she could hop and perch in variety of options as we added different branches in cage.
They started to keep to the cage in open so that she could be exposed to the wilderness. We observed that other birds would come near cage for feeders and ever interact with her. She learnt their songs and watched them.
This was her release day.... She was gonna be free.
He finally opened the door of the cage and she was set free. She was now completely trained to be in open and survive on her own.
