OMGHi2U Baby robbins fell out of the nest..should I put them back?

We had a robin make a nest in the tree right by our front door. 3 babies hatched a few weeks ago, but I just got home from work and the nest was empty.

I was able to spot 2 hopping around in the front yard and flowerbed. They can barely walk, and are not even close to flying yet.

My neighbor told me yesterday that he saw one on the ground and picked it up and put it back. I'm assuming the mother killed that one and disposed of the body, since I always heard that you aren't supposed to touch them.

If I put on rubber gloves and put them back, will they be ok? Right now the mother is flying around all crazy with a worm in her beak, but she never walks over to them, just flys between the tree and the sidewalk.

You can put them back into the nest, that is a myth.

Maybe give surgical gloves a shot?



I know it's horrible to watch these kinds of things and feel like if you do not do anything it is your fault that they die; however, mother nature does what it needs to.


If you can't do it, don't feel guilty-you just can't.

I've picked them up before when they've fallen and put them back in without problems. They parent birds might actually attack you too.

Yeah I heard you're not suppose to touch them as well. The mom wont take care of the young when they've been handled. Take a chance and put 1 back... ? maybe you can raise the baby

We raised a baby mockingbird that I removed from the jaws of one of our cats. It wasn't difficult, but cleaning up the bathroom it lived in for 2 weeks took a while.

Just toss them into some broth to make a stew, they're quite nutritious.

Just toss them into your pants to make a threesome, they're quite frisky.

I did it once and the birds abandoned the nest and were gone the next day.

The mother either thinks that baby will be a failure and pushed it out or the baby is a dumb ass and fell out itself. Let Darwin get his sweet victory either way. Hmm...was that morbid? :P
